A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
Mary Wollstonecraft .
Written in 1792, this is considered a classic of feminist history and theory.
Mary Wollstonecraft is sometimes called the "mother of feminism," because her main goal was to see women gain access to segments of society largely off-limits to them. Wollstonecraft argued primarily for the right of women to be educated, because she believed that through education would come emancipation.
