: Piper: So your Utopia's goig to cure all social ills is it stoller? It's going to be what? The end of history?
: BTW economic relations are not the only cause of legislation. To hold to that is naive in the extreme.
True to some extent. The feminist movement is something which moves both inside and outside the boundaries of economical class structure. Arguing that every existing problem of the society points at the economical reallity is even more metaphysical and ahistorical than the average capitalist sentiment. Nothing but crude economical determination at best..
But can we really rule out that at some point these factors ultimately converge with the economical relations between a man and a woman? Why were women treated unequal in the first place? Why DO they remain unequal? How did the average capitalistic family structure act upon women and their social activities?
The issues of feminism have their origins before capitalism ever existed, but at this specifical time and era of history, the existing barriers of masculine superiority are no doubt reinforced by the economical reallity.
A socialistic/communistic society does not automatically solve the problems between men and women. But I can guess it betters the odds.
