Virginia Woolf is protesting against the position of women in the English upper classes—the professional and aristocratic levels. She asks for equality of opportunity, of pay, of economic position generally, within those classes. All those privileges require the same inequality and favor within the groups as between the groups. Privilege exists by the principle of limitation. Those who do not like what they get of it within their own group must either take their stand with the great majority and demand the abolition of all privilege, or take their chance as simple outsiders, adventurers at large. If privilege is admitted at all, it can be only on its own terms, its own principles. If a genuine working man does advocate a working-class revolution he is making an honest and open demand for the dominance of his group as such, and might be perfectly satisfied with his share in it as a member of the group.
