Feminism and Its Strategies

Leela Desai (Author)
Synopsis The feminism that we know today has its roots in Western society. Gaining a foothold after the First World War, it developed momentum during the days of the Great Depression and progressed still further after the Second World War. The women’s liberation movement took shape in the United States of America and every shade of feminist activity was reflected in it. The concept is still prevalent strongly in the U.S.A. and Britain. This book analyses the various aspects of feminism, and its relation with politics, capitalism, Marxism, etc. Chapter I provides a Marxist feminist analysis, Chapter II discusses issues like femininity, masculinity and sexual practice, while Chapter III probes the ideology of feminism and the culture of gender in various societies. Chapter IV takes up the issue of gender and class in the educational system and Chapter V relates Marxism with gender and the division of labour. Chapter VI discusses women’s oppression and the family while Chapter VII, the last, discusses Capitalism and women’s liberation. These chapters, thus, provide a deep analysis of the issues involved in feminism and feminist movements. This book will surely prove useful to sociologists, students of feminist sociology and those interested in learning more about the development of feminism and its role in the march of civilisation and society.
