Bahar (English literature, U. of Geneva) examines Wollstonecraft's attempts to revise models and representations of women, to give them a more active role in public life. Wollstonecraft's position is compared to that of other 18th century writers, including Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Edmund Burke, William Godwin, Catherine Macaulay, Richard Price, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Adam Smith, to show her rethinking of major concepts in moral, aesthetic, political and social philosophy, and ways in which her ideas were misread.
