<< Mary Wollstonecraft (1759 –1797) was undeniably one of the most outstanding figures of her time. Claiming that “the being cannot be termed rational or virtuous, who obeys any authority, but that of reason”, she embodies in many ways the ideals of the Enlightenment. Courageous, fiercely intelligent and articulate, she effectively challenged the ideas of many of the famous minds around her, including Edmund Burke. Defender of the French Revolution, pioneer for the rights of women and mother to Mary Shelley, her influence on our culture can hardly be overestimated. >>
