4.0 out of 5 stars Still Relevant Today
This might be a frightening generalisation, but the majority of people reading this book are probably doing so in the confines of a formal education course. If you're a woman and the following statement is true Mary Wollstonecraft would be delighted. This book is a complex philosophical argument for the emancipation and education of women. The language of the book, as...

1.0 out of 5 stars Fiddle!
I would expect a reputable publisher like Penguin to make it clear that what they are offering with this "great ideas" collection is *abridged* versions of the books. Get the Dover Thrift edition instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, 6 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Penguin Great Ideas: A Vindication of the Rights Of Woman (Mass Market Paperback)
After watching a BBC program about her I decided to read one of her books. It is a slower read than normal and time is needed to understand her concepts which were way above her time. Would love to have met her

4.0 out of 5 stars Politics Student says "More relevant today than ever", 8 May 2014

Some may claim sexism is dead and buried in the 21st century. Those people would be fools. Whilst gains have been made, Wollstoencraft's ideals are as relevant today than they were back then.

4.0 out of 5 stars She is an intelligent fool and should be alive today to watch The Maury show!, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book and not just because Mary Wolstencraft wrote it, but it shows the world that women are incapable of being honest when given the freedom to think for self.

Mary Wolstencraft argues for a better education for her "middle class" sex mad sistren, as if education makes a woman "virtuos".lool

Mary Wolstencraft appears to dismiss her fellow females that look forward to marriage and desire children!

This woman should be here today, because women with full liberty of educatin are evil, selfish, hell bent on destroying societies that they have not constructed, deceitful, irresponsible, porn freaks and have no shame!

Educated women are more likely to have abortions, a euphamism for killing babies in the womb and stopping life's development; 189,000+ in the UK 2011.

Queens Elizabeth I, Elizabeth II and Victoria have killid more people than all the kings og England put together!

Margarett Thatcher was no better, she privatised what didn't belong to her neither her political party!

So Mary shaddup, shaddup shaddup shaddup!!!

This book is very complicated... and i guess it would be OK for those of you studying this topic in depth, however for those of you looking for a simple book don't bother.
