Mary WOLLSTONECRAFT (1759-1797). English writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. After an unsettled childhood, she opened a school at Newington Green in 1784 with her sister Eliza and a friend: there she made the acquaintance of R. Price and other eminent Dissenters. In 1786, after writing “Thoughts on the Education of Daughters”, she went to Ireland as governess to Lord Kingsborough´s children; she returned in 1788 and spent some years writing reviews and translations for the radical publisher J. Johnson, who published her novel “Mary” (1788), her “A Vindication of the Rights of Men” (1790), and “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” (1792). Wollstonecraft married the philosopher William Godwin, one of the forefathers of the anarchist movement. Wollstonecraft died at the age of 38, eleven days after giving birth to her second daughter, leaving behind several unfinished manuscripts. This daughter, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, became an accomplished writer herself, as Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein.
