Blending biography, gender theory and political analysis, Wendy Gunther-Canada charts Mary Wollstonecraft's transformation from female reader to pioneer feminist author. She shows how Wollstonecraft's pathbreaking "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman" and other works confronted traditional notions of femininity and authority and provided the first systematic argument for women's political rights. This work shows how Wollstonecraft's political ideology guided her personal life, and how she subverted the patriarchal plot of political theory and framed an alternative vision of women as citizens, making her truly a "rebel writer".
