#6. Mary Wollstonecraft
Wollstonecraft is potentially one of the first feminists to directly state how and why change needs to happen. Mary was an English writer, philosopher and a pioneer for women’s rights. She wrote A Vindication Of The Rights Of Woman in 1792 and despite her clear understanding of how to socially address the problem of women living in a patriarchal environment, she was more famous for her relationships than her writing. Mary Wollstonecraft was a radical in the sense that she desired to bridge the gap between mankind’s present circumstances and ultimate perfection. She is considered one of the first feminists and her work is still considered important today.
