Imagining Patriarchy
Tubbs, David L.
Academic Questions, v17 n2 p45-58 Mar 2004
If there was one theme essential to the historical scholarship of Stanford professor Susan Moller Okin, it was the oppression of females. In imbuing political theory with feminism, Okin wrote, for instance, that modern American women are "second-class" citizens in a society where biological differences should count for nothing. Such declarations seemed rash to David Tubbs, so he studied her carefully and confirmed an inherent sloppiness throughout her work, much of which was prejudiced by Okin's deeply held notion that Western history is a grand and unified conspiracy of men against women.
