Close to Home: A Materialist Analysis of Women's Oppression

by Christine Delphy
£11.99   paperback  Verso Books (2016)

Close to Home: A Materialist Analysis of Women Classic analysis of gender relations and patriarchy under capitalism.
 
Close to Home is the classic study of family, patriarchal ideologies, and the politics and strategy of women’s liberation. On the table in this forceful and provocative debate are questions of 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.
 
Rachel Hills’s foreword to this new edition explores how Christine Delphy’s analysis of marriage as the institution behind the exploitation of unpaid women’s labor is as radical and relevant today as it ever was.
