Feminist philosophers have recently begun the process of retelling history from a non-male point of view; this movement has led to the careful reevaluation of works on primitive accumulation and the role of women in capitalism. Maria Mies, Silvia Federici, and Catherine MacKinnon have all contributed significant work towards the goal of reconciling feminism with Marxism without compromising the integrity of either subjects, though the question still remains: how can contemporary feminism and Marxism be reconciled, if at all? This thesis surveys work from the aforementioned thinkers and attempts to answer the question of whether or not the two are compatible.
