About the Book

One of the oldest works of feminist philosophy is A Vindication of the Rights of Woman: with Strictures on Political and Moral Subjects (1792). According to Mary Wollstonecraft, women should get an education appropriate to their social standing.Wollstonecraft addresses the political and educational philosophers of the 18th century who opposed women receiving an education. She contends that women should receive an education appropriate to their standing in society since they teach the country's children and because they have the potential to be "companions" to their husbands rather than mere wives. Wollstonecraft asserts that women are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights as men, rejecting the idea that they are decorations for society or something to be exchanged in marriage.Wollstonecraft uses a variety of parallels to convey the situation of women in society.

Mary Wollstonecraft

Mary Wollstonecraft was a British author, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights was born in Spitalfields, London, on April 27, 1759. She is considered one of the founding feminist philosophers, and feminists of today credit her life and work with having had a significant effect. Wollstonecraft was born in Spitalfields, London, on April 27, 1759. She used to lay outside her mother's bedroom door as a teen to keep her safe. She convinced her sister Eliza to separate from her husband and their young kid in 1784. Wollstonecraft was introduced to Fanny Blood by the Clares, a Hoxton couple who adopted her as their own. She gave Blood credit for widening her horizons. Original Stories from Real Life, her first children's book, was written by her in 1788. In December 1792, one month before Louis XVI was murdered, she fled for Paris. Instead of radical Jacobins, she made friends with moderate Girondins during her time in Paris. Mary Wollstonecraft was disappointed by how the Jacobins treated women in 1790s France. Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Wollstonecraft's second daughter, was born on August 30, 1797. During delivery, the placenta broke and caught an infection. In the eighteenth century, childbed fever (post-partum infection) was a common and frequently deadly condition. Wollstonecraft died on September 10th, 1797, from septicemia.
