Book Description

In her seminal text, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Mary Wollstonecraft crafts a masterful response to the inherently sexist public education system in eighteenth century England. Taking an uncommon position for her time, Wollstonecraft argued the importance of allowing young women equal access to the education system, and asserted that females, like their male counterparts, should be defined by their vocations and not their marital partners. Comparing the treatment of married women to that of property, Wollstonecraft keenly argued that men and women should be treated as humans equal in the eyes of God.

Originally met with both criticism and respect, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is regarded as one of the earliest examples of feminist literature and it continues to be studied to this day, over 200 years after its first publication.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Vindication of the Rights of Woman 10 Feb. 2008
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This looks and feels like a bootleg copy. Most of the pages completely fell out of the binding! Before buying I knew the content was all available to view online, but wanted a copy that was compact and bound to use for class-- but now I have lots of loose pages that I could have gotten for free if I printed them from the internet. Very disappointing, but I need it for school so I couldn't return it.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must read 23 Dec. 2014

A classic on a still relevant subject which has made too little progress. Every one should read this to under stand the modern world history can be the best teacher. Bob
