Evidence

Thursday 11 February 1932: "My mind is set running upon A Knock on the Door (whats its name?) owing largely to reading ""Wells on Woman"" -- how she must be ancillary & decorative in the world of the future, because she has been tried, in 10 years, & has not proved anything."

Notes
Text being reviewed by Woolf's husband Leonard for the New Statesman and Nation. Woolf refers to chapter 11 in it, 'The Role of Women in the World's Work,' which concludes: 'Hitherto the role of women has been decorative and ancillary. And today it seems to be still decorative and ancillary ... Her recent gains in freedom have widened her choice of what she shall adorn or serve, but they have released no new initiative in human affairs....' (quoted by source ed.; see p.75 n.23 in source). 'A Knock on the Door' Woolf's prospective title for contemplated work which would ultimately be published as Three Guineas.
