This text acknowledges progress but also resistances regarding liberalizing procreation control.
The main contribution of this text is to question and challenge the way sociology of work “forgot” women in its analysis.
Women are exploited through the appropriation of their domestic work.
The so-called “natural” justification of men’s domination over women is denounced. The concept of “sexation” to show that women are all subjected if not appropriated by male power.
The author calls for a definition of “sex” as a social category and for a homogenous approach of both categories in sociology.
This journal was dedicated to any kind of feminist creativity, particularly women’s writing.
Rape was judged in the French criminal court and a new law was passed on December 23rd 1980 to recognize rape as a crime against women.
