'Bury Class Society Before It Buries Us All'
Eleanor Burke Leacock's Vision for a Marxist Feminist Anthropology
Keywords:Feminism, Class, Marxism
Eleanor Burke Leacock taught that transhistorical, universal male dominance is a myth, not a fact. Writing during the grimmest period of Cold War reaction, Leacock put forward a critique of the mainstream U.S. ideology, which took for granted the idea that there were only two genders, in binary opposition to each other, and that these were the direct product of so-called male and female nature.
