Wollstonecraft did not write this work for rich women. She vilifies the rich, referring to them as useless and full of artifice. The problems and solutions that Wollstonecraft identifies are for middle-class women, who can attain more education and benefit from it, utilizing the precepts they learn in their households. Financial independence and a degree of political participation are also somewhat possible for these women. Thus, although Wollstonecraft does identify some problems common for all women, her work mainly addresses the middle class.
