People who walk out of the room


In A Room of Her Own, Virginia Woolf writes, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” The essay proposes the importance of economic self-sufficiency as a necessary tool of independence against a contextual backdrop that impedes truth. Unlike their male counterparts, women are routinely denied the time and space to produce creative works. Instead, they are saddled with household duties and are financially and legally bound to paternalism. This book has also become one of the most classic feminist literatures in the 20th century.⠀

The symbol of the feminist movement is an awakening of women's self-consciousness. Most women already have "their own rooms" now, but when they walk out of the room, the world outside the room can literally be like Virginia Woolf said— “No need to be anybody but oneself?”⠀

【People who walk out of the room】Book fair is starting with Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay A Room of Her Own. Physical space was extended to be ideological and spiritual, also consistent with International Women's Day 2020 theme— I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women's Rights. There will be two major themes present at the fair - “Feminism Buffet?”, “Sometimes be a mother and sometimes only be me.” It covers the works related to feminism, the feminist movement and women’s writing, leading the reader to work on self-talk through your reading.⠀

It’s the first time that we cooperate with the bookstore.⠀
There are many guests drink coffee and read the books on our sofa area in the afternoon. We want to share diversity of knowledge with all you guys, so we invite Ubuntu Bookstore to feature theme of the month. Our guests can not only enjoy the service here, but also increase knowledge in different fields from all these featured books.⠀
If that’s not enough for you, you might be able to choose another way to enjoy your relaxing afternoon, such as take a walk along the canal and go to Ubuntu Bookstore to read more stories. ⠀
