Oscar Wilde’s ‘A Woman of No Importance’ (1893): an extract

My warm thanks to a lady supporter, JT, for emailing me this link a moment ago:


The most inspired lines on the page are, of course, these:

LORD ILLINGWORTH. The history of women is the history of the worst form of tyranny the world has ever known. The tyranny of the weak over the strong. It is the only tyranny that lasts.

The Irish genius wrote these lines 120 years ago. Will the rest of the world catch up with him one day?


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
