    If I were to name France s most exciting feminists after Simon de Beauvoir, I would name Delphy When I read Engels s Origins of the Family, Private Property, and the State , I was amazed how Engels was very modern for his time It gave me a whole new perspective on marriage, family and private property However, I have always been very unsatisfied with Marx s simplified model of oppression Marx turned Hegel on his head and argued that conflict between different material conditions motivates s If I were to name France s most exciting feminists after Simon de Beauvoir, I would name Delphy When I read Engels s Origins of the Family, Private Property, and the State , I was amazed how Engels was very modern for his time It gave me a whole new perspective on marriage, family and private property However, I have always been very unsatisfied with Marx s simplified model of oppression Marx turned Hegel on his head and argued that conflict between different material conditions motivates social change However, Marx s idea of two class model always seemed gender neutral read androcentric Marx s tendency to understand gender solely under biological term ignores many social conditions, which give rise to material oppressions unique to women Delphy takes her cue from Marx but argues that within the structural analysis of class system, it is also important to recognize family as an economic unit Gender relations needs to be analyzed in terms of the materiality of life work, labour, production, consumption, exchange and family members material interests Delphy s focus on family as the locus on women s oppression is a change in departure in understanding material conditions of women that varies significantly from men irrespective of their class Understanding women s deprivation is a unique case compared to other disempowered subsets such as the ethnic minorities, poor etc of the society since household and inter familial relations are the central locus of women s disempowerment Women s familial roles are so deeply engrained that the source of their deprivation is not visible Family identities usually exert such strong influence that women may not find it easy to formulate any clear notion of their own individual welfare the notion of well being are often vicarious The glorified gendered assumption of women as the nurturing mother, who is taken to specialize in the household domain and maintenance of family constrain women s full participation in the economy whether as a producer or consumer Women s objective illusion about their perceived position in the romanticized version of family, make it difficult to address gender disparities because gender inequalities within the family tend to survive by making allies out of the deprived Among other things, articles in this book decorously identifies unpaid work in the household as women s main enemy , which is crucial in understanding women s oppression today There are enormous studies done in present day that shows, men and women experience poverty differently, even if they live in the same household Understanding family relationship is an important aspect of understanding women s role in the economy as well as development Delphy s book is an illuminating addition to this, which provides an enlightening perspective on household and gender relationship that is still very relevant today

    To me, material feminism is perfected Marxist feminism and this collection of essays manage to convince me that the onus of women s oppression did not lie on biological and cultural myths but deeply embedded division of labor in the family unit that will not go away easily without radical revolution the elimination of class, to be frank Aside from that, this book makes me hate the marriage institution evenlol.

    Women s oppression is rooted on materialism, through economic and sexual exploitation Here, Delphy focused on the economic exploitation of women embodied in domestic work, which is defined not by the tasks done but by the relations of production with men She refutes the assertion that the labour division is natural, rather, the assignment of women to the domestic sphere emerged due to the hierarchy that dictates the subordinate status of women and women s activities which are mostly the same Women s oppression is rooted on materialism, through economic and sexual exploitation Here, Delphy focused on the economic exploitation of women embodied in domestic work, which is defined not by the tasks done but by the relations of production with men She refutes the assertion that the labour division is natural, rather, the assignment of women to the domestic sphere emerged due to the hierarchy that dictates the subordinate status of women and women s activities which are mostly the same as their male counterparts, only their labour is appropriated

    RuPaul voice 5 s across the board.Christine Delphy is sharp and witty and biting beyond measure Her analysis of housework, her deconstruction of how anti feminism is packaged as feminism and even post feminism, her pushback to the idea that men are necessary for women s liberation my personal fave and every other eloquent, astute thing she talks about Loved and passionately highlighted almost every page.

    An outstanding analysis of women s oppression I particularly appreciated how Delphy attributes it as an external phenomena, one that is rooted in the social rather than natural sphere I also found its consideration of women in marriage as being exploited for their unpaid labor, which may not be considered as such in the Marxist tradition, very illuminating All in all a good example of materialist feminism.
