This book as been at the centre of dispute and analysis in the working class, labour and socialist movement for three decades.
Over four editions and constant reprintings it has informed the debates in the trade union movement, animated discussions in academic circles and defended in the women's movement.
Mary Davis brings to these renewed debates a Marxist analysis of the role of women in class society.
In this newly revised edition she provides a firm repudiation of new forms of idealist thinking about sex, gender and identity that constitute a barrier to practical action and materialist thought
