The Age of Enlightenment is associated with the formation of a new concept of reading, which is widely known as the Reading revolution. The author of the article focuses on the role the Reading revolution played in changing attitudes to female education in the second half of the 18th century. In the late 18thcentury, British intellectuals, both male and female, issued various pedagogical essays and treatises for the benefit of ideal ladies. In these essays and treatises, British intellectuals of the time discussed urgent problems of female education and compiled book lists of recommended reading. M. Wollstonecraft, H. Сhapone, K. McAuley, S. Pennington, H. Mor, E. Darwin, etc. expressed their own unique views on female reading. Female intellectuals also expressed their views on the educational potential of female reading. Some intellectuals suggested that young ladies should read philosophical works, others argued whether or not young ladies should be allowed to read novels. The formation of good reading habits was generally understood to be important.
