11. The domination and enslavement of women by men is the first class conflict which steps on to the stage of history with the birth of private property. Sexist society emerges when the patriarchal social order and the slavery system builds an organic unity, creating the economic, political and ideological institutions of gender and class oppression. This structure also gains a heterosexist character in the historical development.
12. In the capital order, all relations between the genders are established on a socialized scale. Men's control on women's labor and body are socialized. As the power of men is inherent in all social organizations on the basis of the bourgeois family based on domestic slavery, women enter into a direct relationship with capital both as labor commodity and as a sexual commodity. The woman is exploited as a domestic worker and a wage-worker, her body becomes a general commodity and a general area of capital investment.
13. The unity of capitalism and patriarchy is a contradictory unity. The first end of the contradiction between the social character of production and the private character of property pushes women into the social life as labor and commodity, while the second end permanently maintains its home-dependent position. In total, this contradiction reinforces the objective and subjective conditions of the elimination of patriarchy.
14. Women's liberation requires the abolition of the material social basis of patriarchy in the order of capital. This corresponds to the private ownership on the means of production and the bourgeois state, the political-economic-military-ideological institutional structure based on it. The bourgeois state is the institutionalized state of the patriarchal violence, the assurance of the maintenance of sexist exploitation within and outside the home.
15. Women revolution is the revolutionary program of women's liberation. The women revolution intersects with a social revolution which aims at socialism with the liquidation of the patriarchal bourgeois state, and with socialism. Its adventure ends only in communism. The social revolution of the oppressed gender and the oppressed class carries the character of a united revolution.
16. The oppressed and oppressing genders are divided into antagonist classes within themselves. In the face of the necessity of the liquidation of private property, it unifies the fate of the proletarian man and the liberation struggle of the women which he suppresses as both on the basis of class unity and as an alliance force.
17. The women position themselves both, as components of the classes and strata which have interests in this social revolution in the name of these classes, and as a gender for itself which is a social dynamic having interests in the revolution, in the name of her gender. The relationship between the oppressed gender and the oppressed class has a dual character in the form of alliance and innerness. The gender struggle takes the form of ideological and political struggles within this alliance.
