Overview

Maria or The Wrongs of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft

A pioneer champion of women's rights illustrates the grim reality of 18th-century England's draconian marriage laws in the tale of a wife locked up in an asylum by her abusive spouse. Combining the spirited rhetoric of a philosophy with a narrative as gripping as any gothic fiction, this is the book that laid the groundwork for modern feminism.

About the Author

Mary Wollstonecraft was an eighteenth century British writer, philosopher, and feminist. Among the general public and specifically among feminists, Wollstonecraft's life has received much more attention than her writing because of her unconventional, and often tumultuous, personal relationships.

A very interesting book. Ahead of its time concerning women's rights. Nice gothic touches too.
