In Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Men she goes on about the ways in which women were viewed and treated, “to be loved, women’s high end and great distinction they should ‘learn to lisp, to totter in their walk and nickname God’s creatures.’ and its in the novel that we see this sort of treatment first hand, through the ways in which Justine is treated even before she’s tried for murder. Through Elizabeth, we learn that Justine was educated, as she talks about her aunt who had become attached [to Justine] and had decided to further her education from what she had originally planned, although this itself is hardly brought up afterward with the exception of Elizabeth calling her clever. Then there’s also that instance to think of where Elizabeth is calling her clever because it’s not just her calling her clever she’s calling her “clever and gentle and pretty” furthering the emphasis on her beauty that was already there made by those around her. From there, we see the minor ways in which she’s objectified further, made to be this pretty innocent girl who’s image later shifts for the worst because of her bad timing. Through Wollstonecraft’s essay we see this fighting and want for equal opportunities for women, and through the novel, we see the opposite where Elizabeth is subtly talking down Justine when talking about her to Victor not helping her because of his own fears.
