About this book


Revolutionary feminism grew out of the cultural revolution that founded the modern state in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. That cultural revolution responded to the revolution in France, and at the center of both revolutions was the question of the rights and duties of women. Mary Wollstonecraft's mind and career were shaped in response to these revolutions, leading her to formulate a feminism for her time--revolutionary feminism. This book describes the growth of Wollstonecraft's mind and career, and examines all her writings as experiments in revolutionizing writing in terms of her revolutionary feminism.
