In A "Room of One's own" Virgina Woolf think it would have been impossible for a woman of Shakespeare time to have written plays of the level of Shakespear's play why?
Virgina believe that women minority status and lack of privacy are socieconomic factors that prevent women from writing. She also believe that women are derogate by men to maintain their own superiority and most women are angry and insucure about thei inferior status in society.
AM I ON THE RIGHT TRACK HERE? Thanks Much!!!!!

Sounds as if you're on the right track, to some extent. The "angry" women, though -- are you referring to women in the 16th century or now or when? You'd need to qualify that part of your statement, I think.

Other teachers may have further comments.
