A Vindication of the Rights of Woman - The Original Classic Edition

First published in 1792, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman was an instant success, turning its thirty-three-year-old author into a minor celebrity. A pioneering work of early feminism that extends to women the Enlightenment principle of "the rights of man," its argument remains as relevant today as it was for Woll-stonecraft's contemporaries. "Mary Wollstonecraft was not the first writer to call for women to receive a real, challenging education," writes Katha Pollitt in the new Introduction. "But she was the first to connect the education of women to the transformation of women's social position, of relations between the sexes, and even of society itself. She was the first to argue that women's intellectual equality would and should have actual consequences. The winds of change sweep through her pages." This classic work of early feminism remains as relevant and passionate today as it was for Wollstonecraft's contemporaries. This edition includes new explanatory notes. From the Trade Paperback edition.

  • "Writing in an age when the call for the rights of man had brought revolution to America and France, Mary Wollstonecraft produced her own declaration of female independence in 1792. Passionate and forthright, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman attacked the prevailing view of docile, decorative femininity, and instead laid out the principles of emancipation: an equal education for girls and boys, an end to prejudice, and for women to become defined by their profession, not their partner. Mary Wollstonecraft's work was received with a mixture of admiration and outrage - Walpole called her 'a hyena in petticoats' - yet it established her as the mother of modern feminism."

  • ""This edition of Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792)highlights Wollstonecraft's contributions to modern political philosophy, especially the idea of women's human rights, alongside the cultural and political contexts that inspired her important feminist arguments. It includes an introduction by Eileen Hunt Botting (the editor) and several new scholarly essays on the philosophical, literary, and political legacies of the Rights of Woman by Ruth Abbey, Eileen Hunt Botting, Norma Clarke, Madeline Cronin, and Virginia Sapiro.

  • "This revolutionary work from the eighteenth century is one of the first tracts of feminist philosophy Mary Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman in opposition to the gender norms of the eighteenth century. In this seminal text, Wollstonecraft argues that women should receive a comprehensive education in order to benefit society. Women and men, she argues, are moral equals in the eyes of God, and women, at the time that Wollstonecraft was writing, occupied an inferior station because they were trained to serve only men rather than civilization as a whole. Written in response to Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord’s assertion that women ought only to receive a domestic education and should be confined to the home, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman was a remarkably forward-thinking political text. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices."@en

  • "The term feminism did not yet exist when Mary Wollstonecraft wrote this book, but it was the first great piece of feminist writing. In these pages you will find the essence of her argument u for the education of women and for an increased female contribution to society. Her work made the first ripples of what would later become the tidal wave of the women's rights movement. Rationalist but revolutionary, Wollstonecraft changed the world for women."
  • "This edition features a shrewd, annotated abridgment of Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) accompanied by an array of texts that help situate the Vindication in its political, historical, and intellectual contexts. Included are key selections from Wollstonecraft's other writings; from closely related works by Burke, Paine, Godwin, Rousseau, Macaulay, Talleyrand, and Brockden Brown; and from the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen and de Gouges' Declaration of the Rights of Woman and Female Citizen (1791)."@en
  • "The classic work that challenged the system of male supremacy, and has influenced generations of feminists since."@en
  • "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy. In it, Wollstonecraft argues that women ought to have an education commensurate with their position in society and then proceeds to redefine that position, claiming that women are essential to the nation because they educate its children and because they could be "companions" to their husbands rather than mere wives. Instead of viewing women as ornaments to society or property to be traded in marriage, Wollstonecraft maintains that they are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights as men."
  • "Before the concept of equality between the sexes was even conceived, Wollstonecraft wrote this book, a treatise of proto-feminism that was as powerful and original then as it is now. In it she argues with clarity and originality for the rational education of women and for an increased female contribution to society. It was a cry for justice from a woman with no power other than that of her pen and it put into motion a drive towards greater equality between men and women, a movement which continues to this day."

  • "On the history of women's rights and education."
  • "In her seminal text, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Mary Wollstonecraft crafts a masterful response to the inherently sexist public education system in eighteenth century England. Taking an uncommon position for her time, Wollstonecraft argued the importance of allowing young women equal access to the education system, and asserted that females, like their male counterparts, should be defined by their vocations and not their marital partners. Comparing the treatment of married women to that of property, Wollstonecraft keenly argued that men and women should be treated as humans equal in the eyes of God. Originally met with both criticism and respect, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is regarded as one of the earliest examples of feminist literature and it continues to be studied to this day, over 200 years after its first publication.
