Gregory (1724-1773) was a Scottish Enlightenment physician and moralist. His book A Father’s Legacy to His Daughters (1774) was written in honor of his late wife and was only intended for family use, but his son published the work after Gregory’s death, and it became a bestseller in Britain and America. Wollstonecraft criticizes some of Gregory’s positions on women’s education and women’s interactions with men.
