32 pages. An early and groundbreaking view of the role of women in society, written by a young housewife and factory worker, Selma Weinstein, a member of the socialist Forest-Johnson Tendency (FJT), founded by CLR James. The pamphlet, reprinted several times and widely anthologized, argued for the validity of the role of housewife and for marriage, but it also argued that women would be happier with greater autonomy, equality in parenting, and fulfilling work for women. The essay, first published in the FJT organ, Correspondence, and then in this pamphlet, with a print run of 1000 to 1500 copies (see Selma James, Sex, Race and Class, p. 15). In 1955, Selma married CLR James and is best-known as Selma James, a feminist activist to this day. A Woman's Place was credited to two women, the second, according to James, had nothing to do with the writing but suggested the title. An important work of the nascent feminist movement.
