Close to Home : A Materialist Analysis of Women's Oppression (Paperback) (Christine Delphy)
About this item
Once described by Simone de Beauvoir as France’s most exciting feminist writer, the sociologist Christine Delphy was a central figure in French feminism, and one of the first to focus on the structural importance of the family in understanding women’s oppression. Close to Home is her classic study of the family, patriarchal ideologies, and the politics and strategy of the women’s liberation movement. Debating whether men can be feminists, whether “bourgeois” and heterosexual women are retrogressive members of the women’s movement, and how best to struggle against the multiple oppressions women endure,Close to Home remains as relevant today as when it was published in the seventies.
