Romantic Outlaws (Paperback, 2015, Windmill) 5 stars

As in both of her Vindications, the links that Mary saw between the domestic and public spheres, and between the government and the family, are among her most significant insights and one of the key reasons her work still resonates today. By demonstrating how the denial of the rights of women is linked to other inequieties in society, Mary anticipated modern theorists who argue that feminism has never been simply about "women's rights," but is about the societal injustice caused by patriarchy in all its forms. To these writers, modern feminism extends far beyond issues of sexuality, gender, and reproduction to include discussions of class, race, disability, and human rights.
