Työmiehen vaimo is a theater play by Minna Canth first published in 1885. Johana has just got married with Risto. Their happiness starts to fade soon, as Risto is not the good man Johanna imagined. Risto drinks all day long and spends all their money. Risto also spends more time with her former fiancée Homsantuu, a gipsy girl. Johana and Homsantuu both suffer because of Risto, and the women are always to blame. Equality, power, law and justice: how were they like in Finland during that time?
