One of the earliest contributions to feminist philosophy, Wollstonecraft’s powerful treatise on the value of women in society tackles many of the patriarchal attitudes prevalent in the eighteenth century. In addition to championing the notion that women enjoy all the same fundamental rights as men, Wollstonecraft argues that men benefit from treating their wives as companions rather than commodities. Touching upon many themes in women’s education, A Vindications of the Rights of Woman remains a bold and powerful read.

Mary Wollstonecraft (1759 - 97) was an educationalist and feminist writer. Part of the radical set that included Blake and Fuseli, her relationship with William Godwin and the birth of their child - Mary Shelley - outside of marraige caused great scandal after her death.

Review:

Great Ideas... is the right name for these slim, elegant paperbacks... They are written with precision, force, and care. --The Wall Street Journal

Penguin Books hopes to provide an economical remedy for time-pressed readers in search of intellectual sustenance. --USA Today
