Three Marxists essays against Feminist Patriarchy Theory.

Just ran across a few of essays by Marxist/Socialist writers who are critical of the whole notion of "Patriarchy Theory" as espoused by the overwhelming majority of Feminists. It makes sense if you think about it: Patriarchy Conspiracy Theory is focused on Gender as the locus of Women's Oppression. Marxism explains all oppression in terms of Class Struggle.

I believe there's more reading that can be searched out if you check the footnotes of each article. They are at least 20 - 30 years old.
