Keywords:Feminist, taboo, intellectual, egalitarianism, divine, obedient, emancipated
The aim of the paper is to present Mary Wollstonecraft, the first English
feminist writer, essayist and thinker inthe eighteenth-century English women's prose, as one of the first women thinkers to bring the principles of women's rights and gender equality to the forefront of her public agenda.
Despite the thematic diversity of Wollstonecraft's work, the paper focuses
on Wollstonecraft's view of women's upbringing and education, his findings on the downsides of women's education, and his views on theories of women's education development in the right direction.
The life and work of Mary Wollstonecraft is interesting not only from a
historical or literary point of view, but also as a key to the writer's open attitude towards taboo topics in the society of his time, which was unacceptable to eighteenth-century English conservative society.
