I’m stuck on a Business question and need an explanation.
1) Mary Wollstonecraft argues that the women of her time were victims of “a false system of education”(373) that prevented them from fully developing their minds and potentials. Discuss her critique of the education that was provided for women at the time.
2) What connections do you see between Wollstonecraft’s early feminist arguments and those of Abigail Adams and Elizabeth Cady Stanton?
3) Finally, I had you read Queen Elizabeth’s speech to provide a contrast between these early writings by women who advocated for women’s independence and participation in society and this rare example of writing by a woman who held tremendous social and political power. Do you notice any differences in the tone of Elizabeth’s address to the troops from that of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s “Address to the New York State Legislature”?
