Part of the Gibbs Smith Women's Voices series: A collection of literary voices written by, and for, extraordinary women--to encourage, challenge, and inspire.
By the matriarch of feminism, Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Womentackles womens-rights-as-human-rights decades before the women's suffrage movement began. In what is widely considered the very first feminist manifesto, Wollstonecraft argues on behalf of women's natural intellect and character--considered radical at the time, her writing has paved the way of progress for generations to come.
