Marie-Jean-Antoine-Nicolas Caritat, Marquis de Condorcet  published his book Women’s RIghts two years before he was attributed.

Condorcet wrote “the 1790 publication of “Sur l’admission des femmes au droit de cité” [“On the Admission of Women to the Rights of Citizenship”] [that] preceded both Olympe de Gouges’s Déclaration des droits de la femme et de la citoyenne [Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen] (1791) and Mary Wollstonecraft’s Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) (Ansart, 2009, p. 347).
This book defended the emancipation of women and he listed “an impressive number of women who were powerful and had a positive influence in politics, science, and philosophy, including Catharine Macaulay, Marie le Jars de Gournay, and Emilie du Chatelet” (Bergés, 2018, p. 275).
