For many years the victim of smear campaigns by notable male writers, and dismissed as being merely ‘the mother of Mary Shelley’, Mary Wollstonecraft has claimed her rightful title as one of the founders of feminist thought, a movement anchored in her Vindications. Outraged by Edmund Burke’s ‘Reflections on the Revolution in France,’ its use of gendered language used and defence of monarchy and hereditary privilege, ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Men’ turned the tables on philosophy. ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Woman’ swiftly followed, taking the conversation further, and arguing the case for women’s education. Together, these two seminal works went on to change the course of history, and her arguments continue to hold water today.
