1775 to 1815

21: Wed, Nov 14, 2018

Mary Wollstonescraft's A Vindication for Women's Rights. This is book length. The site contains audio readings of chapters, as well as PDFs. Focus on Chapters 1 and 2.

Olympe de Gouges' Declaration of the Rights of Woman. This is fairly short, so you should be able to read all of it.
