This is my first time hosting a read along, and while I have not been much of a productive host on this Goodreads WEM History Group, I am curious about this particular title on the WEM list and especially looking forward to it; therefore, I am grateful for the interest in reading A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, by Mary Wollstonecraft, with me.

So here we are. I included a suggested reading schedule, with a discussion post for the end of each week; however, you are welcome to read at your own pace, and join in when you can during any of the discussions.

My copy is the Penguin Classics edition, with introduction by Miriam Brody. The editor's longer intro is separate from Woolstonecraft's "dedication and introduction," which are included in the reading schedule. All together, my book is under 250 pages, which works out to approximately 60 pages a week.

Suggested Reading/Discussion Schedule (April 1-April 30):

Week One: Dedication and Introduction, plus Chapters I-III (April 7 Discussion Post)
Week Two: Chapters IV-V (April 14 Discussion Post)
Week Three: Chapters VI-XI (April 21 Discussion Post)
Week Four: Chapters XII-XIII (April 30 Wrap-up Discussion Post)*

*April 30th is a Tuesday; therefore, I may post the final discussion on Monday the 29th instead, so as to not interfere with #TopTenTuesday.

By the way...Mary Wollstonecraft has a birthday on April 27th. By then we shall know if we should celebrate her work and make an excuse for cupcakes. 😋

Thanks for joining! See you April 7th.
