Write The First Customer Review

Mary Wollstonecraft's literary life exemplifies how many women of that time adopted print culture to bring about change. This study argues that Protestant society had traditionally sanctioned women's role in spreading literacy, but this became politicized in the 1790s. Wollstonecraft's literary vocation was shaped by the high expectations of the power of print to educate and reform individuals and society, in the radical circles of the Unitarian publisher Joseph Johnson, and the Girondins in revolutionary Paris.
