From the Publisher“Michèle Barrett’s excellent and lucid discussion of the issues and debates within contemporary feminist theory makes a major contribution to our understanding of the nature of that oppression.” —Mary Evans, London School of Economics
“This book is a school of thought.” —Frigga Haug, author of Female Sexualization: A Collective Work of Memory
“Historically significant and deeply relevant to today’s discussions, Barrett’s interrogation of Marxism, feminism, patriarchy and the state is serious yet accessible: this is a key text in the history (and present) of both Marxism and feminism.” —Nina Power, author of One-Dimensional Woman
“Barrett’s eloquent elucidation of the ties and ruptures between feminism and Marxism at the close of the 1970s is especially timely today ... as austerity measures hit women in particular hardest.” —Lynne Segal, Birkbeck College, University of London
