A Book for International Women’s Day.

with 2 comments

Routledge just reminded me that my new book was a particularly good fit for today, so here is:


Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the greatest philosophers and writers of the Eighteenth century. During her brief career, she wrote novels, treatises, a travel narrative, a history of the French Revolution, a conduct book, and a children’s book. Her most celebrated and widely-read work is A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. This Guidebook introduces:

  • Wollstonecraft’s life and the background to A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
  • The ideas and text of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
  • Wollstonecraft’s enduring influence in philosophy and our contemporary intellectual life

It is ideal for anyone coming to Wollstonecraft’s classic text for the first time and anyone interested in the origins of feminist thought.

Happy International Women’s Day.

  2. This book is very much needed and most welcome! We need good secondary literature on women philosophers to get them onto the curricula. Congratulations on your achievement!
