9780099595823: A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

One of the earliest works of feminist philosophy   Before the concept of equality between the sexes was even conceived, Wollstonecraft wrote this book, a treatise of proto-feminism that was as powerful and original then as it is now. In it she argues with clarity and originality for the rational education of women and for an increased female contribution to society. It was a cry for justice from a woman with no power other than that of her pen and it put into motion a drive towards greater equality between men and women, a movement which continues to this day.

About the Author:

Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797) was a writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights, best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.

Review:

"Mary Wollstonecraft's words ring as true today - and are as little heeded by government - as when she wrote them, 200 years ago, in her A Vindication of the Rights of Woman" * Guardian * "The first pebble in the later avalanche of the women's rights movement" -- Melvyn Bragg * Guardian * "A book that was bold in its time and is now considered the notable forerunner of the women's movement" * New York Times * "The first great piece of feminist writing" * Independent * "Changed the world for generations of women to come" * Sunday Times *
