My recent Guardian blog post on Mary Wollstonecraft and natural history might be of interest to BSLS members.

    Her work wasn’t entirely neglected before the 1970s. It certainly came to the attention of Bertha Pappenheim (aka ‘Anna O’) who would have found that it resonated with both her own experience and her own views. In 1899 she translated A Vindication of the Rights of Woman into German and had it published at her own expense. Two years previously she had published an article about Wollstonecraft titled On the Women’s Question a Hundred Years Ago. Although Pappenheim would probably have disapproved of Wollstonecraft’s unconventional life style she admired her sufficiently to keep a picture of her on her sitting room wall.
