Review of Marxism and Women’s Liberation

A great review of Marxism and Women’s Liberation by Judy Cox on Counterfire.

‘This book is a timely and valuable contribution to the discussion about the causes and consequences of women’s oppression. The collection of four essays is very accessible and also very sophisticated. The authors provide a clear and coherent Marxist analysis of women’s oppression. By doing so, they explain why we are where we are and what we can do about it.’

I particularly like that she gets the importance of Cordelia Fine’s work on brain sex: ‘a fascinating debunking of these influential but fanciful theories’. Exactly!
