Search - List of Books by Stevi Jackson

Stevi Jackson started writing on feminist topics in 1973. She describes her research as an attempt to explain and theorise her own experience of being a heterosexual woman. She explicitly states throughout her work that she is a heterosexual feminist working within a materialist framework. Jackson has been Professor of Women’s Studies at the University of York for 11 years and has been politically active throughout her life, particularly in the 1970s when she engaged in consciousness raising groups, went to national conferences and helped to set up Rape Crisis in Cardiff. During the Thatcher years, she joined the Labour party to counter the damage she saw being done by the government. She says Labour was “a good base for feminist campaigning”. In the 1980s, she shied away from action during the ‘sex wars’ which attacked heterosexual feminists for fraternising with the ‘enemy’. She found this period destructive for feminism and as a heterosexual feminist, preferred to stay out of the debates on the issue. Recently, her political action has involved trying to keep women’s studies alive as a space for women to explore feminism but regrets that rising higher in academia leaves less time for feminist action. She believes it is important to build a bridge between feminist theory and practice which is why she particularly enjoyed writing for radical feminist magazine Trouble and Strife. Jackson’s utopia is an egalitarian world without gender where “your genitals matter as little as your hair colour”. A world where marriage is abolished and those who wish to commit to one another engage in civil partnerships. She advocates a collective model of child rearing and believes that heterosexual, monogamous couples are not necessarily the best parents.
