Comprehensive information about Judith Sargent Murray including biographical information, facts, literary works, and more. Judith Sargent Murray (1751–1820) was an early American advocate for women's rights, an essayist, playwright, poet, and letter writer. She was one of the first American proponents of the idea of the equality of the sexes—that women, like men, had the capability of intellectual accomplishment and should be able to achieve economic independence. Her landmark essay "On the Equality of the Sexes," published in the Massachusetts Magazine in March and April 1790 predated Mary Wollstonecraft 's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, which was published in Britain in 1792 and in Philadelphia in 1794.
