5.0 out of 5 stars The Thinking Woman's Woman, January 18, 2012
This review is from: A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and A Vindication of the Rights of Men (Paperback)
Nearly two hundred years before the forceful flowering of feminism in Western countries, Mary Wollstonecraft penned two important essays (both in the form of letters of protest to the writings of male thinkers of the time), one setting forth her protest against social injustices of her time, and the other declaring the intellectual equality of women and setting forth in detail the actions needed to correct the unfair status of women. The complete text of both Vindications are included in this edition. It is of interest to note that she did not manage her personal romantic affairs as wisely as her essays suggest she would have liked. She had one daughter out of wedlock and died giving birth to another after her marriage to William Godwin. This second daughter, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, married political radical and poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Even as the daughter of the two most famous radicals of the time and as the wife of another, Mary Shelley became, in the long term, more famous than any of them as the author of the novel Frankenstein.
