A talented writer who feels that men and women should be educated equally.
In general, 18th century women had only limited access to education. However, not only were upper-class women like Judith Murray well taught, but they also had the opportunity to use their education. Many women found their voices through writing (poetry, letters, or novels), and tackled contemporary politics as well as social issues. One must wonder what they would have accomplished if they had been born 200 years later.
