Mary Wollstonecraft produced her declaration of female independence in 1792. Passionate and forthright, she attacked the prevailing view of docile, decorative femininity and laid out the principles of equal education, an end to prejudice, and the call for women to become defined by their profession, not their partner.
Wollstonecraft wrote this as a follow-up to A Vindication of the Rights of Men, which appeared two years earlier in 1790. That piece itself was an answer to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France. Here she pleads for equality among the sexes and for women to be judged on their merits, not their marriages. This edition contains a new chronology, and expanded notes, among other extras.
