Mary Wollstonecraft, English writer and passionate advocate of educational and social equality for women. Her A Vindication of the Rights of Woman () is considered a trailblazing work of feminism. Her daughter, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, was a noted writer best known for the novel Frankenstein.

I read this book after years of hearing that Mary Wollstonecraft's seminal work promoted a pro-woman/anti-man sentiment and a "free love" lifestyle. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Wollstonecraft used biblical principles to promote the ideas of women's rights to a good education, more responsibility in the home, and the building up of 4/4(). Mary Wollstonecraft was an unconventional person; her home life was rather dreary and dour and compelled her to seek her own fortune.

Sadly, the job she landed was as a ladies maid, and was no better than her life at home. She was forced to return home to nurse her ailing mother until her mother passed away. Mary Wollstonecraft (27 April – 10 September ) was an eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights.

During her brief career, she wrote novels, treatises, a travel narrative, a history of the French Revolution, a conduct book, and a children's book.
