This essay, while sid­ing with the posi­tion that empha­sizes the impor­tance of Althusser’s the­o­ry of read­ing, seeks to exam­ine both the pos­si­bil­i­ties the text opens up for a fem­i­nist read­ing of Marx via the use it has been made by fem­i­nist the­o­rists since its pub­li­ca­tion, but also to point to over­sights of the text itself, par­tic­u­lar­ly con­cern­ing the con­cept of social repro­duc­tion.
