18th century writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. 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. Wollstonecraft is best known for 'A Vindication of the Rights of Woman' (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education.
