Women & Revolution

A discussion of the unhappy marriage of Marxism and Feminism

Women and Revolution deals with contemporary feminist political theory and practice. It is a debate concerning the importance of patriarchy and sexism in industrialized societies - are sexual differences and kin relations as critical to social outcome as economic relations? What is the dynamic between class and sex? Is one or the other dominant? How do they interact? What are the implications for social change? In The Unhappy Marriage of Marxism and Feminism, Hartmann argues that class and patriarchy are equally important and that neither a narrow feminism nor an economist Marxism will suffice to help us understand or change modern society - instead we need a theory that can integrate the two analyses.
