Thirty years have passed since the heyday of the women's liberation movement, yet women remain without equal rights while feminist thought has shifted steadily rightward. This fully updated collection of essays examines these issues from a Marxist perspective, focused on both gender and class, with a new chapter on the stirrings of a new movement today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sharon Smith's work, spanning decades of events affecting women, provides a valuable and uncommon perspective on the oppression and liberation of women. The book covers both theory of women's oppression and the history and politics of women's movements. Her understanding of the grounding of women's oppression in class society, her vision of solidarity among women and men, and her critique of ideologies of sexism and the rollback of the gains of the women's movement are tremendously important contributions to women's studies. More than that, the accessible writing and incisive assessment of the movements gains and losses are indispensable for activists for women's liberation today." Dana Cloud, Associate Professor, University of Texas, Austin
