What is included with this book?
Mary Wollstonecraft is an iconic writer for feminism and modern culture. Her best-known work, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), forcefully argues for womens cultural and political equality using the language and concepts of the revolutionary age, and review earlier Enlightenment arguments for political and social change. Over two hundred years later, Wollstonecrafts arguments can still provoke debate as they address issues of sex-gender inequality that are still with us, although in new and ever-changing forms. This abridged edition is intended to help readers more easily understand the arguments and essential contexts of this vital book. To help contextualise the Vindication, this edition includes selections from other key works by Wollstonecraft, as well with excerpts from closely related works by Burke, Paine, Godwin, Rousseau, Macaulay, Talleyrand, Brockden Brown, and new, matching translations of the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and de Gouges Declaration of the Rights of Women.
