Le sexe du militantisme
The Sex of Militancy
The sex of militancy is the first work in French to explore militancy from the gender angle starting with empirical research on parties, syndicates and social movements. This analysis gathers political scholars, sociologists, anthropologists and historians concerned about the misapprehension of political struggles as "gender neutral." Inequalities of power and resources affect the level of involvement and the division of labor at the core of political organizations as well as for the content of collective actions. This work offers an analysis of the (re)production of power ties via military practices, founded on the logics by which gender, class, and race inequalities permeate militancy.
