Memories of a Working Women's Guild. Offprint from.
The Yale Review, September 1930 - Octavo, pp. 121-138. Tear-sheets side-stapled in original blue printed wrappers. Slight creasing to extremities, light browning to edges.

Woolf had an active interest in the Labour Party and Co-operative Movement and regularly held meetings for her local branch of the Women's Co-operative Guild. This work engages in a discussion of the social movement and her position of privilege, showing her awareness that she sits as a "benevolent spectator" to the actions of the guild (Carroll, p. 123).
