Mary Wollstonecraft and the Dissenters of Newington Green (1794) greeting card

Mary Wollstonecraft (1759 – 1797) challenged convention both through her personal life and her writing.  She wrote ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Woman’ (1792) which developed her concerns for women’s emancipation and education and is now recognised as a classic of feminism.

Seen here outside the Unitarian Chapel in Newington Green, London, where dissenters debated ideas of the Enlightenment. Mary wears a tricolour cockade, having recently returned from revolutionary France.
