Combining the energy of the early seventies feminist movement with the perceptive analyses of the trained theorist, Woman’s Estate is one of the most influential socialist feminist statements of its time.

The books in our Radical Thinkers series offer insights from the world’s most daring thinkers, ranging from Jacques Lacan and Jean-Paul Sartre to Fredric Jameson, Chantal Mouffe, Judith Butler, and many more. Beautifully designed and affordably priced, the publication of this latest Set marks 100 books in the series in total! With a disproportionate focus on male thinkers in the past, we are delighted to announce this feminist set.
