Quentin Letts’s tribute to Clarissa Dickson Wright, ‘One Fab Lady’

British television viewers may recall a wonderful series, Two Fat Ladies, which featured two cooks – Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright. Paterson died some years ago, and Clarissa Dickson Wright died recently at the age of 66. A remarkable woman, she trained as a lawyer and became the youngest woman ever to be called to the Bar.

Her full name was:

Clarissa Theresa Philomena Aileen Mary Josephine Agnes Elsie Trilby Louise Esmerelda Dickson Wright

In my book Buchanan’s Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded people I included one quotation from her, from an interview in the Mail on Sunday, in 2000:

The feminist movement seems to have beaten the manners out of men, but I didn’t see them put up a lot of resistance.

Last week Quentin Letts wrote a wonderful tribute to this fine woman in the Daily Mail. Enjoy:

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.
