Women’S Rights: Views of Early Feminists.

17354. Women’S Rights: Views of Early Feminists.

This paper compares the views on women’s rights and other issues in three texts from the early period of feminism in England and the United States. The texts to be considered are: Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), Anna Letitia Barbauld’s poem “The Rights of Woman” (1792), and the Seneca Falls Conference’s “Declaration of Sentiments” (1848). Wollstonecraft emphasized theory and the need for changes in education and social conditioning, while the “Declaration” emphasized action and the need for changes throughout public life. By contrast, Barbauld rejected the idea of “revolutionary” change and argued instead for a conservative viewpoint on women’s natural place in society. KEYWORDS: women’s rights women’s role early feminist thought feminism. 7 pages, 19 footnotes, 3 bibliographic sources. 1,769 words.
