Abstract
The similar titles of Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Men and A Vindication of Rights of Woman make us question: What motivated her to write the second Vindication? What are the differences between “the Rights of Men” and “Rights of Woman”? Why is there the asymmetry of the plural “Men” and the singular “Woman”? To answer these questions this article investigates several issues including the relation of the universal and the particular, the problem of hierarchical society, and the disparity of men and women. In the dedicated letter of the second Vindication to Talleyrand-Périgord, Wollstonecraft makes equality a central concept in her politics of democracy: that is, equality becomes a new touchstone testing the relevancy of universality of human rights. This article analyzes how politics and equality are related in her texts, exploring, with the help of Rancière's theoretical concepts, her arguments that support the connection of the two. In doing so, we will see that Wollstonecraft invents “woman” as a symbol of minority fighting for emancipation against the patriarchal majority.
