9780140400298: A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (Penguin Classics)

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman: with Strictures on Political and Moral Subjects was written by Mary Wollstonecraft in 1792. During an era of revolutions where there was a greater demand for liberties for all mankind, Mary Wollstonecraft was a British Feminist who was articulate on the rights of women. Maintaining that women are human beings and are deserving of the same rights of men. Mary Wollstonecraft argued that women should be educated creating one of the first great manifesto of women’s rights. “Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be an end to blind obedience; but, as blind obedience is ever sought for by power, tyrants and sensualists are in the right when they endeavor to keep women in the dark, because the former only want slaves, and the latter a play-thing. The sensualist, indeed, has been the most dangerous of tyrants, and women have been duped by their lovers, as princes by their ministers, whilst dreaming that they reigned over them.”
