Materialist feminism is not an unproblematic term. Its relationship to what was called 'socialist feminism' in the 1970s and early 1980s is far from clear. This special issue of SAQ does not resolve these questions. Instead of providing a theory of materialist feminism in the abstract, the authors have tried to build up a provisional, tentative picture of what a 'materialist feminism' might look like in the 1990s.
