A pioneer champion of women's rights illustrates the grim reality of 18th-century England's draconian marriage laws in the tale of a wife locked up in an asylum by her abusive spouse. Combining the spirited rhetoric of a philosophy with a narrative as gripping as any gothic fiction, this is the book that laid the groundwork for modern feminism.

From the Back Cover:

In 'Maria, ' Wollstonecraft pursues in fictional form themes set forth in 'A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.' Her story of a woman incarcerated in a madhouse by her abusive husband dramatizes the effect of the English marriage laws, which made women virtually the property of their husbands.

About the Author:

Mary Wollstonecraft was an eighteenth century British writer, philosopher, and feminist. Among the general public and specifically among feminists, Wollstonecraft's life has received much more attention than her writing because of her unconventional, and often tumultuous, personal relationships.
