Vindication of the Rights of Women
Höfundur Mary Wollstonecraft
Mary Wollstonecraft is now regarded as one of the founding feminist philosophers, and her writings are a key voice in a feminist conversation that still continues today. Writing in a time when men were asserting their rights in revolutions in America and France, Wollstonecraft produced her own declaration of female independence in 1792. Passionate, eloquent and forthright, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman launched a scathing attack on the understanding of women - as docile, domestic figures - and instead laid out the tenets for a new vision. An equal education for girls and boys, an end to prejudice and a chance for women to become defined by their profession, not their partner, were all some of Wollstonecraft's ideas. Whereas Mary Wollstonecraft's work was received at the time with a mixture of admiration and outrage, she is now rightly viewed as a powerful matriarch of modern feminism.
