Oscar Browning (1837-1923) was a writer, historian and educational reformer. He is partly remembered because of the references to him in A Room of One's Own, particularly the reference later in the text to his saying (in the context of marking examination papers), 'the best woman was intellectually the inferior of the worst man'.
