For more than two decades Lise Vogel has been an important voice in feminist theory. Woman Questions brings Drawing upon the life stori essays on socialist feminism, Marxist theory, and the problem of equality. The collection provides not only a compendium of one influential thinker's work, but a thoughtful overview of the evolution of US socialist feminism. The essays are grouped in three sections covering the relationship between feminism and socialism, the significance of the Marxist theoretical tradition for women's liberation, and issues of difference, diversity, and equality. A lengthy autobiographical introduction offers readers access to Vogel's personal story--of civil rights work in Mississippi, the early women's liberation movement, a radical career switch, and growing up in a politically active family.
