Mary Wollstonecraft


Lembrar a radical e feminista Mary Wollstonecraft, pioneira na luta por iguais direitos para as mulheres. Em dia 8 de Março.

It is vain to expect virtue from women till they are in some degree independent of men; nay, it is vain to expect that strength of natural affection which would make them good wives and mothers. Whilst they are absolutely dependent on their husbands they will be cunning, mean, and selfish. The preposterous distinction of rank, which render civilization a curse, by dividing the world between voluptuous tyrants and cunning envious dependents, corrupt, almost equally, every class of people.
A Vindication of the Rights of Women (1792)
