Feminism and Political TheoryBook - 1986
From different feminist perspectives, the authors reappraise and reconstruct political science in terms of a powerful new critique. Individual chapters consider the development of feminist thought in history and analyse the place occupied by women's issues in contemporary political theory. Conflicts within traditional Marxist as well as 'New Right' ideologies are highlighted by a feminist analysis that reveals how the distinction between 'public' and 'private' spheres in traditional political theory has marginalized women.
This work examines the fundamental question of whether it is merely the content, or the essential methods and tools of political analysis, that need to be reassessed.
