9780889463035: Equality of the Two Sexes: A 17th-Century French Treatise on the State of Women (Studies in the History of Philosophy, Vol 11)

In this example of Cartesian rationalism, Poullain expounds a remarkably modern feminist position - that sexual inequality is not rooted in nature, but is the historical result of custom, ignorance, and prejudice. Translated into English text from the original French text of 1673, this edition also includes an introduction.
