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.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary's daughter and the author of the novel Frankenstein
Her husband was a famous philosopher, but very abusive to Mary and her sister.
If Mary was alive today she would probably get along with Oprah. They both are strong women who stand up for the rights of all women.
