Mrs. Woolf has received three separate requests for a guinea - one for a women's college building fund, one for a society promoting the employment of professional women, and one to help prevent war and "protect culture, and intellectual liberty." The book is a threefold answer to these requests - and as Mrs. Woolf examines the three cause and points out that they are inseparably the same, she declares a new tactic of feminine purpose.
