Publisher's Summary

In A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Mary Wollstonecraft tackles the wasted potential she sees in women, refusing to see them as inferior to men; she decries their limitations and suggests that they are worthy of an equal standard of education and that they should be taught to develop their own reason, not simply how to gain a man. Written in 1792, at the height of the French Revolution, A Vindication is an eloquent and persuasive response to the prevailing attitudes of the time. It is the original feminist manifesto.

Still relevant

I am amazed at how relevant Wollstonecraft's work is today. I became aware of my own ignorance with regard to the subtle oppression still felt by women over 200 years after this book was written. I'm glad I took the time to study this work more closely.
