Talleyrand-Périgord (1754-1838) was a longstanding French diplomat and politician. In 1791, he submitted his Rapport sur l'instruction publique (Report on Public Education) to the French National Assembly as part of the process of revising the French constitution. The report only addresses public education for men; it recommends private (home) education as sufficient for women. Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman in response and dedicated the work to Talleyrand- Périgord.
