Australian Left Review


This paper is concerned with the potential insights which contemporary feminist movements hav e to o f fe r s o c ia l is t movements in two areas: (1) socialist theory about women’s liberation which I take to be a key concern of socialists world-wide; and (2) socialist theory and practice more generally, apart from the question o f women as a social group. Finally, I would like to speculate on the practical possibilities of a synthesis of socialist and feminist politics. Though the issues I will raise have broad applicability to the industrialised countries, my thinking is naturally based most heavily on experience limited to the United States.
