This work explores Mary Wollstonecraft's 19th-century legacy in relation to three themes integral to her work: the nature of motherhood, religion and the empowerment of women, and women's contribution to the sciences of man. The introduction provides a comparative framework for French and English women and situates each essay within current historical debates.
