520    Part of a gilded couple, Constance Wilde was a popular 
       children's author, a fashion icon, and a leading 
       campaigner for women's rights. A founding member of the 
       magical society, The Golden Dawn, her pioneering and 
       questioning spirit encouraged her to sample some of the 
       more controversial aspects of her time. Mrs. Oscar Wilde 
       was a phenomenon in her own right. She held a privileged 
       position in society. In the spring of 1895 her life 
       changed irrevocably. That spring Constance's entire life 
       was eclipsed by scandal. Forced to flee to the Continent 
       with her two sons, her glittering literary and political 
       career ended abruptly. She lived in exile until her death.
