    Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the early promoters of gender equality long before other crusaders took up the cause. She is perhaps best known for her books, “A Vindication of the Rights of Women” (1792) and “A Vindication of the Rights of Men” (1790). But she also wrote widely on education and used fiction formats to promote her progressive views. This book using the genre of didactic children’s stories, was written the same year as her “Mary: A Fiction” 1788, but was first published anonymously. It relates the re-education two young girls -- Mary 15 and Caroline, 12, by Mrs. Mason who dispenses her advice on topics of character and behavior ranging from the treatment of animals to idleness and innocent amusements, without any real dialog.
