Gloriana; or, The Revolution of 1900 (1890) is a novel by Lady Florence Dixie. A member of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies, Dixie believed in the emancipation of women through radical cultural and political change. Gloriana; or, The Revolution of 1900, a feminist utopian novel, is the story of a revolutionary hero who defies gender norms and fights for liberation by any means necessary. Gloriana pleads woman's cause, pleads for her freedom, for the just acknowledgement of her rights. It pleads that her equal humanity with man shall be recognized, and therefor that her claim to share what he has arrogated to himself, shall be considered. Gloriana pleads that in woman's degradation man shall no longer be debased, that in her elevation he shall be upraised and ennobled." Following this stirring introduction, Lady Florence Dixie tells the story of Gloriana de Lara, a woman who decides to put an end to patriarchy. Disguising herself as a man named Hector d'Estrange, she attends both Eton and Oxford and is elected a Member of Parliament. Meanwhile, she leads the revolutionary Woman's Volunteer Company on a campaign of violence against repressive authority. When a plot to reveal her identity is discovered, she is forced to go into hiding or else sacrifice years of painstaking work toward the liberation of women throughout the world. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Lady Florence Dixie's Gloriana; or, The Revolution of 1900 is a classic of British literature reimagined for modern readers.
