Storyboard Text

  • This era has been a truly enlightening one. We as a people have become enlightened, haven't we?
  • Miss Wollstonecraft, if the overwhelming passion for knowledge and reasoning of people isn't proof for you that we are an enlightened population, then the overexaggerated need of philosophers to educate people and reform the society should also be proof. 
  • If that is indeed the case, and you are a creature of reason, I suggest you read my latest work. It's titled A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.
  • How is this work of yours going to be useful to me in my daily life?
  • It is a treatise with details on how to overcome the manners in which women are mistreated and denied their potential in the society.
  • Pray, what nonsense you speak! My potential as a woman is fully recognized, because all that matters about me is my looks, how elegant  and proper I am, and how well I satisfy men. Quite frankly, that is all that should matter to you too. 
  • No! You're missing the point. I wrote this essay to enlighten everyone on the equality of the sexes.
  • Miss Wollstonecraft, the genders are as equal as it gets, what with women being useless figureheads, and men, dominating over us.
  • Pray, Miss, but you are quite unenlightened. How could you even suggest that women need to be more entitled??
  • By God, you are so adamant in believing  what you want. 
  • Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going home where I have absolutely no purpose.
