Dead British Radical Watch*: Mary Wollstonecraft

Author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), wife of William Godwin, and mother of Mary Shelley, born 250 years ago today.

PS. A good indicator of what’s wrong with how we teach history in this country: the BBC’s history site puts Wollstonecraft’s biography under ‘Empire and Seapower‘. Splice the mainbrace!
