Property, Women and Politics: Subjects or Objects?

Cambridge: Polity (1997)

Donna Dickenson
Birkbeck, University of London
This book contributes to the feminist reconstruction of political theory. Although many feminist authors have pointed out the ways in which women have been property, they have been less successful in suggesting how women might become the subjects rather than the objects of property-holding. This book synthesises political theory from liberal, Marxist, Kantian and Hegelian traditions, applying these ideas to history and social policy.
