Student´s name: Mengual Roca , Vanessa

Title of the paper: EDUCATION: THE GATEWAY TO THE WORLD

Author or topic: Mary Wollstonecraft, Virginia Woolf, Betty Friedan

Abstract: In this paper I have compared Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Virginia Woolf’s Three Guineas and Betty Friedan’s The Feminine Mystique. I have established a parallelism between them focusing on education. In the introduction I explain the reasons behind my choice. In order to explain how education is depicted in these works, I have divided my paper into sections. It deals with the political background which infuenced these writings and how it draws up different contexts to approach the same topic. In addition to this, the main body of the paper has focused on similarities shared by these masterpieces with lots of examples which untangle the evolution and the importance education has in society. If you are interested in my opinions and in the main points of this paper it is gathered in the conclusion.

Auto-evaluation: This paper has been done as detailed as it is possible so it took me many hours in front of these books, in front of my laptop, trying to do the best of my own . So for my effort, for time spent on it and because I reckon I have produced a rewarding work, not only for me but also for anyone who desires to read it, I give myself a 9.

FIRST PAPER

Subject: #14206 Literatura Anglesa i Discurs Polític

Student´s name: Mengual Roca , Vanessa

Title of the paper: A RATIONAL EDUCATION, a fundamental right

Author or topic: Mary Wollstonecraft

Abstract: In this paper I am going to analyze A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, focusing on education. I have kept to this point specifically but to understand it better I give more complete data. At first, you can read an introduction which gets you into this paper and later you can consult a great deal of information in a biography related with the subject. Later, going to her political, social and cultural turmoils, you can comprehend better Wollstonecraft’s arguments. After that, a detailed analysis is given about her book and its main important points: her refusal of the Enlightenment men’s opinions, how reason is the beginning to exercise power over ourselves and how it is the product of education, considering it as the mainstay of society.  Lastly, everything and more will be gathered in my conclusion.

Auto-evaluation: I think I deserve a mark of 8-9, since I have chosen an engaging and up-to-date topic to the viewer. I have dedicated a lot of effort to go beyond what has been considered a “simple feminist book” and to look for the background of Wollstonecraft’s reasoning, explaining at the end why education is the most powerful weapon to change society. This paper has been done as detailed as it is possible.
