Maria, or the Wrongs of Woman

Book cover
By Mary Wollstonecraft, an eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and feminist. She was the author of novels, treatises, a collection of letters, a book on history of French Revolution, on children’s education and children’s fiction. But A Vindication of the Rights of Woman appears her best known work, where she affirms that women are of the same degree of intellectual development as men are. “Maria, or the Wrongs of Woman” was published posthumously and considered to be the most radical feminist Wollstonecraft’s work. Here the author criticizes patriarchal, from her point of view, matrimony institution, as well as its harmful influence upon women. The action revolves around a woman, who was enclosed by her husband into asylum, where the heroine finds satisfaction out of her marriage in romance with a “cellmate” and in her friendship with one of the hospital attendants.
