Abstract

To mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Wollstonecraft's death, this book brings together contributions which cover interdisciplinary readings of Wollstonecraft's texts as well as historical explorations of the politics of gender, and reflect a convergence of feminist theory and practice. The book's themes include the roles of imagination, reason, and romance in sexual politics; the problems of forming feminist identities; the tensions between ideas of equality or common humanity; and differences of sex, class, and race power.
