Abstract

In the 70s, Christine Delphy presents the perspective of materialist feminism focusing on unpaid domestic work. Delphy’s analysis highlights the legacy of Beauvoir’s thinking, since it repeats criticism of classical marxism, while that theory does not spell out the conditions of oppression and exploitation of women. These issues and their treatment from materialist feminism are placed in some Latin American studies. We refer to occupation in the ‘service’ and domestic tasks, and segregation among women. Finally, we broaden the framework for the reception of Beauvoir’s thinking, in particular the issue of female workers, on the basis of Marcela Nari’s analysis. This article is the result of the research project "Conscience and Awareness in Simone de Beauvoir. Reception and analysis of gender and class intersections in the construction of the hall "carried out with a doctoral grant awarded by the National Centre for Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET), headed by Dr Beatriz Emilce Cagnolati and Dr Maria Luisa Femenías.
