Document Summary

En2012 professor terry goldie january 31, 2011. The failure of early feminism was that it only attacked the darwinist charge of female inferiority, while accepting the foundations of this charge namely, the view of woman as unique . They still believed as men do that the cause (origin) of their oppression lay within themselves. Found themselves at an impasse out of a lack of reasons to fight. They upheld the illogical principle of equality in difference. They fell back into the trap which threatens us once again: the myth of woman. Our fight aims to suppress men as a class but a political struggle. Once the class men disappears, women as a class will disappear as well, for there are no slaves without masters. Our first task is to always thoroughly dissociate women (the class within which we fight) and woman the myth.
