The Rights of Woman


by Anna Laetitia Barbauld

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


There's no sex in this poem—in fact, women are kicking men out entirely. But there's a lot of woman-on-man violence suggested by all the war metaphors, so we're giving it a PG rating instead of a G.
