A Vindication of the Rights of Woman Summary and Analysis of Chapters VIII and IX

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman Summary and Analysis of Chapters VIII and IX




"Women only desire the respect of the world, as Rousseau himself acknowledged. He wrote, "reputation is no less indispensable than chastity." This is a problematic perspective because while reputation comes from exercising virtue, women can rarely ever regain their reputation if they return to virtue, whereas men "preserve theirs during the exercise of vice." Wollstonecraft acknowledges that those accused of vice are usually guilty of it, but some may also earn a reputation better than they deserve."
