Australian Left Review


At some time in the future it will be necessary for a theoretical analysis to be made round an idea of revolutionary change in Australia which will take into account not only the material factors but also the ideas and attitudes of men and women which are among the interchanging forces which determine the maintenance or otherwise of these factors. Specific to this study would be the working out of the sex-roles which men and women play within the imposed structure of society and the way both suffer from this, yet help to cement or to break up this basic imposition. The Communist Party of Australia has not attempted such an analysis, and is primarily held back from even seeing the need for this by not only a firm acceptance of those imposed rules, but by an even more firmly cemented encrustation of capitalism — that of paternalism.
