Proudhon Pierre-Joseph

<history of philosophy, biography> French anarchist (1809-1865). Proudhon's Qu'est-ce que la propriÈtÈ? (What is Property?) (1840) defined property as theft and demanded that individual workers be allowed to control the means of their own production. Proudhon was notoriously anti-feminist, arguing in La Pornocratie (Pornocracy) that sexual equality and economic independence for women would undermine traditional marriage.
