The radical feminism of Shulamith Firestone by Victoria Margree

The Radical Feminism of Shulamith Firestone

Principal Lecturer Dr Victoria Margree’s new book on the controversial theories of 70s feminist Firestone is set to be published on 29 June 2018.

Shulamith Firestone’s The Dialectic of Sex proved controversial upon its publication in 1970 with its thesis that the origins of women’s oppression lie in biology: in the fact that it is women and not men who conceive and give birth to children.

Victoria Margree’s upcoming book Neglected or Misunderstood: The Radical Feminism of Shulamith Firestone argues for Firestone’s importance to the resurgent feminism of today as a text that interrogates issues around gender, biology, sexuality, work and technology, and the ways in which our imaginations in the 21st century continue to be in thrall to ideologies of maternity and the nuclear family.

Victoria Margree teaches feminist politics and theory, literature, critical theory and conflict studies on our Humanities: history, philosophy, culture and politics courses.
