Description - Materialist Feminism by Rosemary Hennessy

During the 1980s many of feminism's earlier priorities were marginalized. "Identity politics", often formed in terms of social reconstructionism or multiculturalism, has increasingly suppressed materialist feminism's systematic perspective, replacing it with discourse analysis or cultural politics. This reader argues against the retreat to multiculturalism for keeping invisible the material links among the explosion of meaning-making practices in highly industrialized social sectors, the exploitation of women's labour, and the appropriation of women's bodies that continues to undergird the scramble for profits and state power in multinational capitalism. In making 20 years of materialist feminist thought more accessible, this text should contribute to the development of feminism's third wave.
