Halldenius’s Wollstonecraft in THE Books of 2015

Lena Halldenius’s Mary Wollstonecraft and Feminist Republicanism is listed in the THE’s best books of 2015!

Mary Wollstonecraft is typically depicted as a romantic historical figure, but Lena Halldenius’ superb Mary Wollstonecraft and Feminist Republicanism: Independence, Rights and the Experience of Unfreedom (Pickering & Chatto) presents her as a serious theorist of freedom for women and other enslaved social groups. It is a truly consciousness-raising work that made me feel rather guilty about reading it on a banana lounge in Bali.

Congratulations, Lena!
