Mary Astell

Theosophical Transactions, the journal of Jane Lead 's Philadelphian Society , warmly praised MA 's work and published extracts from it. Damaris Masham , however (who was herself guessed by some to be the author), wrote against MA and her associate John Norris in 1696 and 1705: she apparently felt that the idea of institutions where unmarried women could live together savoured irremediably of Catholic convents.
Masham, though emphatically not Astell, would approve the English Short Title Catalogue's allotting this work the subject-heading Monasticism and religious orders for women.

Both Pendarves and Wesley's sister Mehetabel Wright had suffered in bitterly unhappy marriages which were not of their own choosing.
