Modern feminism and Marx

Studies in East European Thought 44 (3):159-192 (1992)
Marx has been criticized by feminists for many reasons, much of it based upon a misunderstanding of Marx. Many feminists take Marx's view to be that the family, gendered division of labor, and male domination are determined by either purely economic factors of natural biological factors. I try to show that Marx holds neither of these views. I also try to show that reproduction and the oppression of women that arises from men's control of private property, which are often claimed to be matters of peripheral interest to Marx, are, in fact, conceptually most central and important for him.
