"In a political move that still inflames feminists today, the revolutionary socialists Karl Marx and Frederick Engels repudiated women's demands for full economic equality." -- Drucilla K. Barker and Susan F. Feiner (2004) _Liberating Economics: Feminist Perspectives on Families, Work, and Globalization_ :Ann Arbor: The University of Michigan Press, p. 27. An endnote (p. 149) identifies the source of this claim as Nancy Folbre's "Socialism: Feminist and Scientific". *Did M&E oppose demands for economic equality by and for women?* In solidarity, Jerry PS: I hope, at another time, to pursue other issues related to the Barker-Feiner book -- which, on the whole, is a very good and comprehensive treatment of the subject and literature.
