Portrait of Mary Wollstonecraft

Comparing & Contrasting Both jean and Mary proposed new social theories for their respective generations. Jeans explored children’s psychology and Mary was involved in women’s social status. Jean was an university educated male, his theories were accepted right away. Mary by contrast was and uneducated female, her theories were criticized and not accepted for over 100 years.Evaluations:I believe Jean was a very important person to young children. Today it is obvious that children are not smaller adults. If we still believe that children were smaller adults and they were born with knowledge then kids would struggle tremendously in school and other aspects of life.Mary is a very important women to myself and other women without her the movement for women's right may have been delayed because she may not have inspired other women to fight for rights as well.
