A Room Of Her Own Foundation (AROHO) is dedicated to helping women artists achieve the privacy and financial support necessary to pursue their art. As Virginia Woolf recognized in the 1920s, "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write."   While Woolf spoke of writers, AROHO applies her words to women of various disciplines. The 2009 Literary Gift of Freedom Award will be given to an American woman writer who is a U.S. citizen and will be living in the U.S. during the grant period.
