According to the Meriam Webster dictionary feminism is the advocacy of women 's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. this is referred as a movement by females to strive to be equal as men. Feminism has been around since the 18th century and is moderately still around in present society. There were many famous women who participated in the Feminism, there was also many women who influenced feminism. One example of these famous women is Mary Wollstonecraft. Mary Wollstonecraft wrote a famous book called “A vindication of women 's rights” were she explained her point of view on what she thought was happening in society and how it’s unfair. Mary Wollstonecraft is pro feminist and gives good points on how women should be given equal rights as men, and not be classified as lower than them just because they are not the same gender. Mary Wollstonecraft’s argument in the “Vindication of the Rights of a Women” is legitimate, because of how women were not seen as people in the eyes of the law in back then. Feminism has slowly evolved and it has also impacted society throughout the years, and still has an effect in modern society. When Mary Wollstonecraft starts her book, she goes straight to her point. She feels depressed because women were not being equally treated as men in humanity, and she feels this is unjust for her and for women in general. Wollstonecraft believed that women should have as much of an education and power in society as men.
