Rights of Women: Mary Wollstonecraft, an English writer, advanced the strongest statement for the rights of women. She identified two problems with the views of many Enlightenment thinkers; she noted that the power of men over women was equally wrong.
Separation of Powers: The executive, legislative, and judicial powers of the government limit and control each other in a system of checks and balances in this separation. This system provides the greatest freedom and security for the state by preventing any one person or group from gaining too much power.
Natural Rights: John Locke defended the claim that men are by nature free and equal against claims that God had made all people subject to a monarch. He argued that people have three natural rights: life, liberty, and property.
