Analysis Of Mary Rousseau 's ' A Vindication Of The Rights Of Woman '

- This analysis endeavours to understand a bundle of quotes extracted from the work of Wollstonecraft, particularly her theories within “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman”.

The second paragraph will attempt to contextualise her views per the historical and cultural events occurring around the time of writing, and debate whether Wollstonecraft’s theories were ‘male-orientated’ to compensate for her audience, or if through socialisation she genuinely believed women to be the imperfect ones, and that is was the responsibility o...   [tags: Feminism, Gender, Sociology]
