  1. Weeks, K. "Abolition of the family: the most infamous feminist proposal." Feminist Theory  (January, 2021). [doi]

    In the 1970s, what Marx and Engels satirised as the most ‘infamous proposal of the communists’, the abolition of the family, becomes the most scandalous demand of feminists. Ever since then, numerous US feminists have tried to walk it back. This article revisits 1970s feminist family abolitionism and develops an argument for its contemporary relevance.
