About the Authors
  • Mary Wollstonecraft is remembered principally as the author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and there has been a tendency to view her most famous work in isolation. Yet Wollstonecraft's pronouncements about women grew out of her reflections on men, and her views on the female sex constituted an integral part of a wider moral and political critique of her times that she first fully formulated in A Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). This fully annotated edition brings these two works together.

    • The first fundamental statement on 'feminist theory'
    • Brings together for the first time two of her most famous works
    • One of the most important authors in the history of writings about women
    • Fully annotated throughout with a complete index

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a thoughtful, wide-ranging and important examination of Wollstonecraft's thought … Wollstonecraft is skilfully considered in terms of radical Enlightenment thought, and the links between this and feminism are probed in a treatment that is alive to the diversity of this radicalism.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
