Ernst Brandes

Ernst Brandes (3 October 1758 – 13 May 1810) was a Hannoverian lawyer, official, writer, and scholar.

Brandes witnessed the French Revolution as a journalist. Influenced by Edmund Burke, he is regarded by commentators as a voice of conservatism and Anglophile political views during the Enlightenment.

His 1787 treatise ''Ueber die Weiber'' argued against the emerging feminist notion of the equality of the sexes. Provided by Wikipedia
