Summary

The author here offers a "multicausal theory to explain the development of the patriarchical system.She seeks to show that the subordination of women is a historical (i.e., changeable) phenomenon, not a natural one.Lerner posits that division of labor by sex occurred early but that the oppression ofwomen began with the emergence of agriculture; the domination of women, she argues, preceded and served as the foundation for the origin of private property and the state and the institutionalization of slavery."(Libr J)Bibliography.Index.
