5.0 out of 5 stars A vindication of the rights of Woman, 17 Nov 2013
P. Harvey "solidago" (Hampshire, UK) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book I had always meant to read and at last I have. Mary Woolstonecraft was a feminist, writing in the late 1700s
She writes with very long sentences with many, many commas. This is largely a condemnation of Rousseau (whom I haven't read)
but he evidently believed in keeping women in their place, with their inferior brains and their charming but weak bodies.
She believes that women should be educated to be proper companions to men, but reading her in the 21st century makes one realise how unambitious she really was for women and how surprised she would be to see how far women have come in the last 200 years.
