- Dover Thrift Editions: A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN
DetailsConsidered a heroine of feminism, Wollstonecraft argues that women, rather than cultivating power from sexual allure, should be honest, intelligent, and independent. Her views about how women's innate worth is denigrated by improper definitions of the feminine in novels, advice literature, and in educational systems has inspired women for over two centuries.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mary Wollstonecraft was an English writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. During her brief career, she wrote novels, treatises, a travel narrative, a history of the French Revolution, a conduct book, and a children's book. Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason.With the emergence of the feminist movement at the turn of the twentieth century, Wollstonecraft's advocacy of women's equality and critiques of conventional femininity became increasingly important.Today Wollstonecraft is regarded as one of the founding feminist philosophers, and feminists often cite both her life and work as important influences.
