Review: A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

User Review  - Rebecca - Goodreads

Thank you, Wollstonecraft for your courage and voice. Her speech turned essay left me considering how some of the issues she calls humanity to task on are still prescient today. Also, how does one ... Read full review

I'm not too fond of the way the book is written, but I think this is an important book for men and women to read. She beats down on Rosseau so hard, lol. Read full review

User Review  - Surabhi - Goodreads

"It would be an endless task to trace the variety of meannesses, cares, and sorrows, into which women are plunged by the prevailing opinion, that they were created rather to feel than reason, and that ... Read full review

User Review  - Phyllis - Goodreads

Review: A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

User Review  - Sara Reis - Goodreads

Funny how so much of what she criticised in society's expectations towards women are still so true more than 2 centuries later. She pinpoints education (or lack of) as the reason for women's seemingly ... Read full review

User Review  - Vicki - Goodreads

A great essay on feminism, and even today still applicable in so many ways. I loved this, although this could've been much shorter because Wollstonecraft goes on and on with her point, it could've ... Read full review
