Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason.
She had the strength and courage to write philosophical texts that demanded rights for women, and more importantly, respect. Though her feminist philosophy was not popular in her time, her books have hugely inspired modern feminists. Instead of viewing women as ornaments to society or property to be traded in marriage. Wollstonecraft argued that women are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights as men.
