Despite the differences in their philosophical foundations for women’s human rights, Wollstonecraft and Mill agreed that girls have the same fundamental right as boys to receive an education that would nurture the development of their core human capabilities. Both prescribed a state mandate for UPE as a necessary practical step toward transforming the pernicious, male-biased gender norms that had stunted women’s self-development as well as human development as a whole. Given their concern for persuading governments to pay their obligation to provide girls and boys the same access to an education in the broadest and most virtuous sense, it is not politically surprising that Wollstonecraft and Mill dwelled on the extrinsic social benefits of such an education rather than solely on its intrinsic benefits for the children.
