CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

The arguments Proudhon develops about women, love, and wedlock are not only the expression of his misogyny, but they also fulfill a crucial function in his theory of justice: marriage, which presupposes the superiority of men over women, is the original institution without which human dignity would end in a war of everyone against everyone. The fundamental inequality between women and men, which is a condition of their complementarity and is sanctified by marriage, is the only way for a society in which men are free and equal to emerge.
