Women and Marxism - Authors

John Stuart Mill


John Stuart Mill wrote the much-translated The Subjection of Women when there was a growing movement related to women's rights in education, legal, economic and cultural matters. Mill argued that the nature of women could not be evaluated when under legal and other constraints. Women's rights in industrial work were intially opposed by the Lassalleans and in early congresses of the First International. Send corrections, comments and additions to sryan@marxists.org.
