Abstract: This paper will examine how Mary Wollstonecraft uses reason to show that eighteenth-century women have to ability to represent themselves in the literary world and in society. While Wollstonecraft’s political treatise, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) will help readers understand her feminist notions, her novels create possibilities for female empowerment. In this paper, Mary Wollstonecraft’s representations of women in her two novels, respectively Mary, A Fiction (1788) and The Wrongs of Woman; or, Maria (1798) will be analyzed in greater depth to present her systematic fight for the rights of women.
