Erica Jong Quotes: Here Is The Difference Between Oscar

Here Is The Difference Between Oscar Wilde And Me. For All The Tortures He Suffered, For All The Ugliness Of Being Punished For Loving Men, Nobody Read His Lines And Asked Him: What Does Your Husband Think Of That? Jail, Exile
These Were His Lot. But Never, What Does Your Husband Think?
Women May Have The Vote, But They Are Not Free As Long As That Reaction Erupts. Even Those Without Husbands Are Judged As If They Had Offended Them Merely By Writing The Truth.
So Immovable Is The Wall Around A Woman's Freedom That She Can't Do A Things Without Being Asked To Think Of Its Effect Upon Some Man Who Is Presumed To Be More Important Than She.
