Sheila Rowbotham Presents Mary Wollstonecraft by Mary Wollstonecraft
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


First written in 1790, Mary Wollstonecraft's book remains one of the very first works of feminist thought. Groundbreaking in its demands for women's education although subsequently criticized by some for its ambiguity towards the notion of women's equality, "A Vindication" remains one of the most important texts arguing for women's rights. Renowned feminist writer Sheila Rowbotham puts Wollstonecraft's life and work in a new light.
