BOOK DESCRIPTION

First published in 1970, The Dialectic of Sex remains one of the key documents of the women's liberation movement: exhilarating, provocative, powerful, its arguments are at the very root of contemporary feminism.

The new feminism, the author argues, is not just a revival of a serious political movement for social equality. it is the second wave of the most important revolution in history, whose aim is the overthrow of the oldest, most rigid class/caste system in existence, the class system based on sex. Feminists have to question not just all Western culture, but the organisation of culture itself.
