In my opinion ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Woman’ is primarily a Romantic argument. Throughout the entire introduction, chapter 1, and 2 Wollstonecraft talks about love and both internal and external change amongst men and women. She consistently refers to the men of her society as tyrants who act just as the kings they overthrew in Paris. She calls for the men to look at the new constitution and explain with ‘reason’ why women should not have the same rights as any man (Wollstonecraft, 289). She further attacks man by calling them “ignorant beings” (289). As I read Wollstonecraft’s work I found her writing and thoughts to be very entertaining and quite similar to how many modern women think. It seems to me that according to Wollstonecraft it is natural for women to aspire to love and be loved, but she brings about the point that the education system for women tries to shape women into obedient wives whose sole purpose is to pleasure man. She tries to get her fellow woman to not lose those natural instincts but instead grow in those abilities and virtues. In doing so they will hopefully gain some respect from their male counterparts (292). No human wishes to be walked on all over or is this just a modern day notion? She says that if women continue to only desire to marry then this desire will make them “mere animals” (293). The way Wollstonecraft discusses schooling for women almost reminds me of the schooling for modern day children. Both are required to put away childish fantasies and reasoning in order for them to fit into what society calls this norm for adulthood but like Wollstonecraft I wonder if this is actually okay because just as Wollstonecraft points out we are fighting/ rewriting what should be an almost natural instinct.
