Hi Political Animals -

Last time we discussed reading Carole Pateman's "The Sexual Contract", a feminist take on social contract theory that examines marriage and prostitution, and whether women can be equal in a society that originally saw them as the objects and not subjects of a contract.

We haven't read any feminist theory before, so let's give it a go. The book was written in 1988 - I wonder whether civil partnerships change all of this.

Andrew, the Tory/Labour suggestion is interesting - we can discuss the idea and any possible reading for it at the meetup.

The Pateman book is available on Amazon and Google Books. Annoyingly when I Googled it, an advert appeared advising me to " Chat with sexy women. Why wait?"
