The fight for the rights of women has continued since then and still continues in modern feminist movements. Although it may seem like a constant battle to some, none of these activists would have been able to do this without Wollstonecraft and her writings in A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. Wollstonecraft created a base for the women’s rights movement, she framed the way women and men alike view feminism and she also changed how society views feminism. Women’s rights are human rights and Wollstonecraft made it her life’s work to get this message across. Wollstonecraft created a base for the women’s rights movement and got women thinking for themselves about what needed to change.
Women’s rights activist, Malala Yousafzai, has said, “We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” The fight for women’s equality is one that has its origins traced back many years. Women have always been dependent upon men and have been denied the same freedom men are granted. Why are women different from men even though they are both humans. Even though women today are still fighting for equality, one of hardest times for them was the Victorian Era in which where they were confined to their gender roles and had little to no rights. Women were considered inferior from all aspects of life.
In a woman 's life, she has always been told to be a certain way or to do certain things. She was not allowed to pave her own path, her path was paved by her mother until she was married then it was paved by her husband. It was impossible to get a job and supply for themselves due to their sex as well as education level.

Radical feminists thought women domination is more significunt to deal with, as compared to other types of domination (Jaggar and Rothenberg 1984). They concider that a society is a compound of a number of sub-groups. These subgroups are structured on the basis of natural cause or on the basis of social relations, e.g sex, caste, race, age, gender. Within each division some persons have authority over others and in this relation of domination and subordination, dominants demoralized their subordinates. Correspondingly, in patriarchal arrangement men learnt to manage the women (Lerners 1986).
They tried their best to make women educated, to make them free from the shackles of slavery and discrimination on several grounds. As a result, the same women proved their ability by working for the freedom of the country. Yet their suffering and distress remained endless. Even in the 20th and 21st century, when women are at the peak of success, they suffer a lot due to the violence and relegated status both in the family and in patriarchal society. The close
Introduction Patriarchy is the sociological structure in which man dominates women. Within this structure men have power to subordinate women (Warren, 2004). The entire relationship is not only on family, but the whole community. Slavery of women in the form of patriarchy is still fueling most activities of feminist movements.

The reader notices that an older generation of women have accepted their role in society over the years and silently approve of the male sovereignty by abiding by norms.
