The argument in “A vindication of the Rights of Women” follows that of the Enlightenment. Wollstonecraft bases her argument in reason, discussing the equality of women in economic and industrious settings. To begin, she claims to have produced “irrefragable arguments drawn from matters of fact” (289). Her later statements support her claim with simple logic such as “faithless husbands with make faithless wives” (289), and “I reason consequentially…that [men and women] have the same simple direction, and that there is a God.” (298). Enlightenment holds the belief that religion and reason are a source of wisdom while Romanticism focuses on nature. Many of the mentions of nature are often in context with education and society; she claims that the faults of men and women are “the natural consequence of their education and station in society.” (309-310). The main argument of Wollstonecraft suggests that upbringing, rather than nature, produces any “natural” qualities associated with gender. She argues that women grow up wanting to be pretty because they are taught to, implying the ability of man over nature, and identifying the possibility that teaching the opposite would in turn have the opposite effect. Lastly, she takes a practical approach on the unfair treatment of women. Instead of a romantic dialogue on how women feel because of their inferior treatment, she discusses how if a women were to lose her husband and be left with children, she would need “to educate them…to form their principles and secure their property” (305). The passage treats death like an economic issue, looking at the trials of a widow from a practical point of view, absent of all emotion. The logical thinking in the work and style of argument suggests characterize the work as part of the Enlightenment movement.
