A Vindication of the Rights of Woman: With Strictures on Political and Moral Subjects

non-fiction by Mary Wollstonecraft

Blurb

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is a classic feminist essay by Mary Wollstonecraft. The conduct and manners of women, in fact, evidently prove, that their minds are not in a healthy state; for, like the flowers that are planted in too rich a soil, strength and usefulness are sacrificed to beauty; and the flaunting leaves, after having pleased a fastidious eye, fade, disregarded on the stalk, long before the season when they ought to have arrived at maturity.
