Summary: In this book, Sharon L. Jansen explores a recurring theme in writing by women: the dream of finding or creating a private and secluded retreat from the world of men. These imagined women's worlds' may be very small, a single room even, or may be more ambitious, such as the dream of an entire country created for and inhabited exclusively by women.
