“This anthology is considered one of the groundbreaking collections of feminist essays published in the 1970′s, and includes works by authors such as Sally Slocum. The ideas expressed in this collection are heavily focused towards the development of universal explanations and helpful dichotomies.” (Department of Anthropology, University of Alabama)

This book is a must for those who would follow the Marxist-feminist argument. Most of the authors are developing their arguments within the general outline of Marxist theory, yet their work here exposes some of the tensions and conflicts within that same theory. This is certainly the stuff of dialectics!
