I know no better stance to adopt from within the secular-religious, evangelical traditions of United States politics, including the politics of socialist feminism.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
It is also an effort to contribute to socialist- feminist culture and theory in a postmodernist, non-naturalist mode and in the utopian tradition of imagining a world without gender, which is perhaps a world without genesis, but maybe also a world without end.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
'Textualization' of everything in poststructuralist, postmodernist theory has been damned by Marxists and socialist feminists for its utopian disregard for the lived relations of domination that ground the 'play' of arbitrary reading.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
I think that radical and socialist/ Marxist-feminisms have also undermined their/our own epistemological strategies and that this is a crucially valuable step in imagining possible unities.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
But what would another political myth for socialist- feminism look like?
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
What kind of politics could embrace partial, contradictory, permanently unclosed constructions of personal and collective selves and still be faithful, effective - and, ironically, socialist- feminist?
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
White women, including socialist feminists, discovered (that is, were forced kicking and screaming to notice) the non-innocence of the category 'woman'.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
Both Marxist /socialist- feminisms and radical feminisms have simul-taneously naturalized and denatured the category 'woman' and conscious-ness of the social lives of 'women'.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
In faithful filiation, socialist- feminism advanced by allying itself with the basic analytic strategies of Marxism.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
The main achievement of both Marxist feminists and socialist feminists was to expand the category of labour to accommodate what (some) women did, even when the wage relation was subordinated to a more comprehensive view of labour under capitalist patriarchy.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
In particular, women's labour in the household and women's activity as mothers generally (that is, reproduction in the socialist- feminist sense), entered theory on the authority of analogy to the Marxian concept of labour.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
Marxist /socialist- feminism does not 'natur-alize' unity; it is a possible achievement based on a possible standpoint rooted in social relations.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
As for the Marxist/ socialist feminist, consciousness is an achievement, not a natural fact.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
If my complaint about socialist/ Marxian standpoints is their unintended erasure of polyvocal, unassimilable, radical difference made visible in anti-colonial discourse and practice, MacKinnon's intentional erasure of all difference through the device of the 'essential' nonexistence of women is not reassuring.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
In my taxonomy, which like any other taxonomy is a re-inscription of history, radical feminism can accommodate all the activities of women named by socialist feminists as forms of labour only if the activity can somehow be sexualized.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
Embarrassed silence about race among white radical and socialist feminists was one major, devastating political consequence.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
The structure of my caricature looks like this: socialist feminism--structure of class // wage labour // alienation labour, by analogy reproduction, by extension sex, by addition race radical feminism - structure of gender // sexual appropriation // objectification sex, by analogy labour, by extension reproduction, by addition race In another context, the French theorist, Julia Kristeva, claimed women appeared as a historical group after the Second World War, along with groups like youth.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
Perhaps socialist feminists were not substantially guilty of producing essentialist theory that suppressed women's particularity and contradictory interests.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
THE INFORMATICS OF DOMINATION In this attempt at an epistemological and political position, I would like to sketch a picture of possible unity, a picture indebted to socialist and feminist principles of design.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
One important route for reconstructing socialist- feminist politics is through theory and practice addressed to the social relations of science and technology, including crucially the systems of myth and meanings structuring our imaginations.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
Some of the rearrangements of race, sex, and class rooted in high-tech-facilitated social relations can make socialist- feminism more relevant to effective progressive politics.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
An adequate socialist- feminist politics should address women in the privileged occupational categories, and particularly in the production of science and technology that constructs scientific-technical discourses, processes, and objects.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
Since much of this picture interweaves with the social relations of science and technology, the urgency of a socialist- feminist politics addressed to science and technology is plain.
A Cyborg Manifesto [EN] (1984)
There are grounds for hope in the emerging bases for new kinds of unity across race, gender, and class, as these elementary units of socialist- feminist analysis themselves suffer protean transformations.
