A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

by Mary Wollstonecraft

Overview

Today, the idea that men and women should enjoy equal rights is accepted in many parts of the world. But when Mary Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman in 1792, the word 'feminism' did not exist, and the concept was unthinkable to many. In this classic treatise, the pioneering philosopher, writer, and women's advocate delves into subjects still applicable today, including differences in the education and treatment of boys and girls, and the importance of women being involved in the democratic process. Often considered the first work of feminism, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman continues to be an inspiration for women's movements worldwide.
