A House of One's Own

Almost a century ago, Virginia Woolf pointed out that for a woman to write, and write well, she needs a steady income, time on her hands and a room of her own. One might argue that Sweden of 2011 is a quite different world than London of 1928, yet there are parallells to be drawn. […]
