Mary Wollstonecraft is arguing rights for women. She believes women should be intelligent and educated citizens first and foremost, if they are going to be good wives and mothers. She claims society would be better off if things were this way. She does not claim women are better. She claims men and women must be treated equal. Mary calls to women to start acting like responsible adults and demands them to quit letting others treat them like children. This was revolutionary because it was the beginning of someone telling the world to give girls a chance.
