This e-book attracts from her sizeable output of articles, chapters, books and speeches to supply a thematic but built-in account of her suggestions in political conception and contributions to the politics of policy-making.

As a feminist Pateman defies categorization, and her suggestions of ‘the sexual agreement’ and ‘Wollstonecraft’s obstacle’ are canonical.
Pateman’s innovation this is an integration of welfare concerns – specifically the proposals for a ‘basic source of revenue’ or for a ‘capital stake’ – into her huge yet continuously rigorous belief of democracy. this is often argued via by way of citizenship, taken because the results of a social agreement. In that means Pateman places liberalism itself via an approaching critique, drawing within the practicalities and dangers of existence in past due capitalist societies. Her idea as consistently is political, taking in neo-liberal assaults on ‘welfare states’ and the stark realities of overseas inequalities. Pateman’s profession achievements in democratic and feminist concept are introduced productively to undergo on debates that will in a different way take place in additional constrained, and not more provocative, educational and political contexts.
