Mary Wollstonecraft

A Vindication of the Rights of Women

wrote "A Vindication of the Rights of Women"

She argued that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She studied the writings of Thomas Paine and John Locke, who greatly influenced her thinking about natural rights of mankind. But Mary took it one step further and started advocating full equal rights for women.
Mary was born in England in 1759. She was a writer. Because her father was abusive toward her as a child, she ended up running away from home at 19 and earning her living in London as a writer -- which was unheard of for a woman in that time. Later she and her sister were both physically abused by her husband. That was when Mary ran away again.

Pro - education

Maary believed strongly in letting women learn to read and have the same rights as men.
