A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

by Mary Wollstonecraft

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

Mary Wollstonecraft

Overview

We hear about feminism and women's rights on a regular basis these days, but have you ever wondered where it all began? Many consider the first great work of feminist literature to be A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft. Wollstonecraft wrote this revolutionary novel all the way back in 1792, when the term 'feminism' didn't even exist. Her work has been an inspiration for feminists all over for hundreds of years.

She delves into subjects still applicable in today's world, such as why we have male and female traits, differences in education, treatment of boys and girls, and the importance of females being involved in the democratic process. Wollstonecraft makes a point to say that she doesn't believe that women are superior, but rather that it would benefit both sexes if they became more educated and involved in politics. Her work was important then, and still remains very relevant to this day.
