Vintage Feminism- classic feminist texts in short form
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ZOE WILLIAMS
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 - 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.
