A Vindication of the Rights of Woman  
DEFINITION
  • Five years prior to her untimely death at 38, Mary WoUstonecraft (1759-1797) made a major deposit in the historical account of Western feminism with A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (subtitled With Strictures on Political and Moral Subjects). The revolutionary nature of this polemic lay in its rejection of patriarchal conventions. [Source: Encyclopedia of Gender and Society; Vindication of the Rights of Woman, A]
