“I work so many hours at the factory. I need to find a way for my daughter to live a better life than me.”
“How do you do that?”
“I’m not sure. No time to think about that.”
Writing and thinking about the conditions that enable one to “think” and participate in the production of knowledge, I found this post on Humans of New York very interesting.
It’s obviously not directly talking about the literal or figurative “room” that Woolf argues for, but the conditions that allow one to think outside the everyday need to make ends meet seem to remain relevant today for both sexes.
