9780151983650: Women in the kibbutz

How do women act when they are freed from most household chores, economically independent of their husbands, and have been living apart from their children from the time the children were approximately four weeks old? Given equal and similar social circumstances, do men and women behave in the same way in politics? the economy? warfare? ls equality of the sexes a viable concept, after all? Two important social scientists have asked these questions of and about the women in that provocative human experiment, the Israeli kibbutz. The conclusions are startling. The result is a major and myth exploding contribution to the literature of feminism and of utopias. Based on the lives of 34,040 kibbutz dwellers, and supported by tables, graphs, interviews, and elaborate computerized data, WOMEN IN THE KIBBUTZ provides the facts essential for a discussion, which has been until now all too rhetorical, of how women everywhere want to live a discussion set amid the current controversies about sex, gender, nature, and power. Here is a book that may change the very rules of discussion about men and women..
