This study examines Mary Wollstonecraft ' generally recognized as the founder of the early feminist movement ' by shedding light on her relationship to eighteenth-century instructional literature and its influence on educational theorists of her day, and feminist pedagogy in particular. While contemporary scholars have extensively theorized Wollstonecraft's philosophical and political contributions to early feminism, little attention has been given to her understanding and representation of feminist practice, most clearly deployed in her instructional writing. This study makes a significant contribution to the fields of both eighteenth-century and Romantic Era literature by looking at how early feminism influenced didactic traditions from the late-eighteenth century to today. Hanley argues that Wollstonecraft constructs a paradigm of feminist pedagogy both in the texts' representations of teaching and learning, and her own authorial approach in re-appropriating earlier texts and textual traditions. Her appropriations of Locke, Rousseau, and other educationists allow her to develop reading and writing pedagogies that promote critical thinking and gesture toward contemporary composition theories and practices. Hanley underscores the significance of Wollstonecraft as teacher and mentor by visiting texts that are generally assigned a short space in the context of a larger discussion about her life and/or writing, re-presenting her works of instruction as meaningful both in their revisionist approaches to tradition and their normative didactic features.
