1757-1797
 Mary Wollstonecraft (born
in 1759, London, died in
1797, London) was an
English writer, philosopher
and passionate advocate
of educational and social
equality for women.
 The daughter of a farmer,
Wollstonecraft taught
school and worked as a
governess, experiences
that inspired her views in
Thoughts on the
Education of Daughters
(1787).
 In 1788 she began working
as a translator for the
London publisher Joseph
Johnson, who published
several of her works,
including the novel Mary:
A Fiction (1788).
 Her mature work on
woman’s place in society
is A Vindication of the
Rights of Woman (1792),
which calls for women and
men to be educated
equally.
 In 1792 Wollstonecraft left
England to observe the
French Revolution in Paris
 Wollstonecraft returned to London to
work again for Johnson and joined an
influential radical group, which
gathered at his home and included
William Godwin.
 In 1796 she began a liaison with
Godwin, and in 1797 Mary being
pregnant.
 Mary died 11 days after the birth of
her second daughter, Mary
Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851),
who became a novelist best known as
the author of Frankenstein.
 Among Wollstonecraft’s late notable
works are Letters Written During a
Short Residence in Sweden, Norway,
and Denmark (1796), and Maria; or,
The Wrongs of Woman (1798), a
posthumously published unfinished
work that is a novelistic sequel to A
Vindication of the Rights of Woman.
Mary Wollstonecraft is seen
by many as a founder of
feminism due to her 1792
book titled A Vindication of
the Rights of Woman.
In this book she argues that
class and private property are
the basis of discrimination
against women, and that
women as much as men
needed equal rights.
- Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of
Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally
inferior to men but appear to be only because they lack education.
- She suggests that both men and women should be treated as
rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason.
 A Vindication of the
Rights of Women called
for female equality,
particularly in the area
of education.
 Wollstonecraft
dismissed the
cultivation of
traditional female
virtues of submission
and service.
 She argued that
women could not be
good mothers, good
wives and good
household managers if
they were not well-
educated.
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
by Mary Wollstonecraft.
Sharp, witty, and full of fiery intensity,
A Vindication of the Rights of Women
(published here as The Feminist Papers)
is an excellent historical document on
the fight for women's liberation and
still remains an engrossing read today.
