Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) was an English philosopher and writer.  Her most famous work is A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues for expanded rights for women, principally the right to education.  Wollstonecraft lived in a politically turbulent time and her writings reflect her political outlook.  She was also interested in many other issues including morality, education, and history.
