Hannah More's increasingly ambitious plans for her Sunday schools led her to found another in the parish of Wedmore, where she encountered serious opposition from high church clergy. In 1799 she published her most ambitious conduct-book, Strictures on the Modern System of Female Education, which has been seen as an anti-feminist polemic, but has also been compared to Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman. But it was the religious passages that most attracted attention and led to accusations of Calvinism from the ultra-Tory Anti-Jacobin Review and the high church clerics, Charles Daubeny and Jonathan Boucher.
