  • Supping with the Devil? Second Wave Feminism and Neo-Liberalism - Beatrix Campbell
    imperialism feminism s trajectory in the institutions was a case shall we say of uneven development at the global level patriarchy s loss of legitimacy was expressed in some UN values and projects in modest EU legislative reform it was the EU that drove the UK s belated and minimalist legislation In Britain the Second Wave found some expression in municipal socialism trade unions in the cultures of professions at the interface between the institutions and citizens in survivor movements and public service During the mid 1970s the implementation of the Equal Pay Act converged with a historic social contract between a Labour government and the unions that for the first time prioritised the low paid That didn t last one of the causes among many of Labour s undoing towards the end of the decade was the revival of macho ascendancy and anti egalitarianism within trade unionism And yet this had been a unique moment in the post war history of Labourism largely underestimated or opposed by the left It had been an economic political context in which feminism could thrive Why Because the state in that moment was disposed to take the side of women and the lowest paid organised working class power for the first time in peace and relative prosperity embraced a thoroughly egalitarian economic ethos It was a moment of democratic modernisation it was enlisted to reform the practices of organised labour s political bargaining so that social benefits and social power could be shared across the working class rather than economic power being focused on short term gains for the labour aristocracy Women in employment were the major beneficiaries 8 SUMMER 2009 PERSPECTIVES 22 The social contract was a complex and hugely controversial moment it split the left but it was revelatory about the context in which feminism might thrive Its ultimate rejection by the labour movement provoked what was to become three decades of neo liberal economics and the new imperialism The effect on feminism was shattering The political landscape became barren The Second Wave became endangered Feminism is always contingent as a social movement it has an institutional presence which is precarious it is both there and not there its impact depends on champions and consensus its priorities always risk being lost in translation they are mediated through other political parties professional and workers organisations that have been constructed in the image and interests of men The Second Wave had influence but no power Nonetheless in the 1980s its impact was still palpable particularly on the renovation of peace politics and municipal democracy Greenham Common peace camp and the peace movement s resistance to the deployment of Cruise missiles in the UK changed the way that artful direct action could be performed in the welfare professions particularly anti oppressive practice though sometimes experienced as brutal was on the intellectual horizon municipalism was radicalised and modernised pluralistic notions of citizenship and popular planning became embedded in the big cities and so provoked the Thatcher government that it abolished an entire layer of metropolitan government Feminism woz there DEFEAT OF SOCIAL DEMOCRACY The defeat of social democracy was then overwhelming it was epochal Not only were there four successive Conservative election victories but Thatcherism s legacy lived on in the metamorphosis of Labourism into New Labour New Labour was nothing if not a repudiation of the new social movements It followed the neo liberal direction of travel promoted privatisation and endorsed the new imperialism that took Britain into more wars than at any time since World War II For feminism that was even worse than it seemed New Labour had been the beneficiary of feminism s insurgency within Labourism By the 1997 election the party fielded more women than ever before and dragged women s presence in Parliament up to a meagre but hugely better 18 per cent Labourism had been a men s movement its egalitarian rhetoric had been compromised by the overwhelming influence of the trade union block vote a proxy for organised men The women s presence in the 1997 election therefore came to be represented as the marque of modernisation If Fraser s hypothesis is to work then this is its moment But it isn t the women s presence was instantly muted New Labour had strenuously distanced itself from the radicalisms that were not to its taste movements and interests struggled to find a niche in the big tent and insofar as they flourished it was when they articulated with other populist initiatives One of New Labour s biggest positive achievements was an effect of feminists within the government Second Wavers Insofar as women s interests were favoured it was typically conjunctural when feminist champions within the Cabinet Second Wavers converged with other interests An exemplar was the law on domestic violence and the prosecution of sex offences which was radically reformed an effect of feminist pressure on a tough law and order orientation EFFECT OF FEMINISTS IN GOVERNMENT One of New Labour s biggest positive achievements the expansion of public child care the UK has the lowest level of public child care provision among its European equivalents was an effect of feminists within the government Second Wavers plus crime prevention preoccupations The feminists were alone New Labour didn t like lily livered pinkos anywhere New Labour s social welfare agenda was modelled on the esprit of Clinton s welfarism a moralism towards mothers and populist anxieties about crime gender and generation It was not affirmed by the Second Wave nor was it ideologically endorsed by the movements for social justice in civil society What they did was put up and shut up Economic strategy however became impregnable characterised by low direct tax liberation of the Bank of England privatisation plus retention of the restraints on trade union activism and a robust refusal to bankroll equal pay Within a decade relative inequality had widened to levels unknown since the 1960s and the pay gap between men and women
