Woman in the Nineteenth Century - Margaret Fuller
First published in book form in 1845. In this book, Fuller articulates values arising from her passionate belief in justice and equality for all humankind, with a particular focus on women. Although her notion of basic rights certainly includes those of an educational, economic, and legal nature, it is intellectual expansion and changes in the prevailing attitudes towards women that Fuller cherishes far above the superficial manifestations of liberation.
