About this book

In her latest book, Gillian Howie offers a bold new way to make sense of the relationship between feminist theory and capitalism. This exciting combination of existentialism, phenomenology, and critical theory delivers a proactive feminism ready to respond to the challenges presented by our thoroughly modern times.

Reviews

"Howie constructs a genuinely critical feminist theory capable of unifying, dialectically, many of the diverse problems that exercise feminists today. Through a sophisticated, systematic deployment of a philosophically nuanced materialism, Howie defends the senses of 'realism,' 'objectivity,' 'essence,' 'woman,' and 'patriarchy,' which she argues are necessary for the identification of and struggle against the oppression of women. She also convincingly explains the form that oppression often takes by demonstrating the relevance of revivified Marxist categories (reification, commodification, alienation, exploitation), while bending a sometimes-reluctant Adorno into the service of feminism. This book should be read by anyone interested in the relation between feminist theory and politics and confirms Howie as one of the most important feminist materialist thinkers writing in English today." - Stella Sandford, Principal Lecturer in Modern European Philosophy, Kingston University London
