Living the life of one’s own
In her famous essay, “a room of one’s own,” Virginia Wolf argued that women should have a room of their own in which to create and nurture a space of their own. This, after all, the privilege granted to gentlemen for centuries–they read and wrote in their study.
So following that train of thought, I believe that not only do we all, men and women, deserve a room of their own, but also a life of their own. That means, a life unperturbed by the expectations of others or the taboos/stereotypes imposed by the culture/society.
