Shala is then bullied because of her decision to wear her hijab, which
Mary Wollstonecraft was a philosopher and an advocate that fought for women’s rights, she strived for all sexes to be treated equally and believed that everyone regardless of what sex they were should receive an equal education.

The first event was the writing of the French constitution that denied any rights to women and only granted citizenship to men. The other event was about education where she was inspired to write a book after the report that Charles Maurice de Talleyrand made stating that a women’s education should be focused toward submissive actions.

For him, women should only study what is necessary to know how to be patient, obedient and resigned. According to him, the only thing, which women have of superior, is beauty . Montaigne shows two reasons to prove that women should have a limited access to knowledge. First of all, he thinks that they are not capable to reach the intellectual level of men.

She states within From a Vindication of the Rights of Woman, that woman being uneducated is a weakness. Wollstonecraft compares women to military men who are not prepared. Wollstonecraft believed that women along with men should all have a mind of their own. Wollstonecraft states in, From a Vindication of the Rights of Woman, “Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be an end to blind obedience; but, as blind obedience is ever sought for by power, tyrants and sensualists are in the right when they endeavor to keep women in dark, because former only want slaves, and the latter a plaything.” Wollstonecraft truly does not blame men for the action of women, but blames women for allowing men to have control over them.

This claim during her time is extremely radical, but today it would be a normal claim. She proposes that women have put themselves in this situation themselves and to prevent this from happening women need to sustain themselves and not allow men to make all the decisions and do all the work.
