Alternate title:Virginia Woolf : A room of one's own
Summary:Eileen Atkins recreates her one-woman stage performance based on Virginia Woolf's 1929 talk to the women of Girton College, Cambridge. Woolf's talk was a call to women to declare their independence, talent and freedom to write, think, love and labor, and to control their own destinies, yet realize necessary communion on all levels between men and women.
