Women’s Oppression Today is a classic text in the debate about Marxism and feminism, exploring how gender, sexuality and the 'family-household system' operate in relation to contemporary capitalism.
In this updated edition, Michèle Barrett surveys the social and intellectual changes that have taken place since the book's original publication, and looks back at the political climate in which the book was written. In a major new essay, she defends the central arguments of the book, at the same time addressing the way such an engagement would play out differently today, over thirty years later.
