We shall look in Chapter 5 at the remarkable similarity between Anne Bronte's comments in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Wollstonecraft's in A Vindication. Here we should simply note that Bronte's position on the moral nature and status of women and on female education bears striking similarities to those expressed by Wollstonecraft.

This fact itself is an eloquent testimony to her individuality, which has too often been lost in myths of the Bronte sisters.
