Adolph Reed: "Women's Studies as a Class Project" 

Inattentiveness to sexual inequality’s embeddedness in capitalist political economy links directly to the fact that feminist discourse posits “misogyny”—rather than historically specific political-economic and legal institutions, relations, and practices—as the causal source of (unjust) inequality affecting women past and present. Misogyny, however, notwithstanding efforts to represent it as something more concrete via modifiers like “structural” or “systemic,” is an abstract idea, an attitude or belief, and is therefore incapable of causing anything.

I switched out a few words. Of course it's a class project. The bourgeoisie is a necessary step towards liberation, freedom, etc. whatever those words are supposed to mean.
