Virginia Woolf Quote


Picture Quote:



Therefore if you insist upon fighting to protect me, or 'our' country, let it be understood, soberly and rationally between us, that you are fighting to gratify a sex instinct which I cannot share; to procure benefits which I have not shared and probably will not share; but not to gratify my instincts, or to protect myself or my country. For... in fact, as a woman, I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.  - Virginia Woolf
