The A. argues that gender and class formation within local states involves processes of conflict, accomodation, co-optation, and transformation. Variations in material conditions of struggle contribute to fragmented or contradictory experiences of gender and class relations in and against local states. Two Canadian examples are used. The first is that of recent feminist and working-class struggles within Ontario's legal-aid clinic system. The second is that of the development of a women-only housing cooperative in Hamilton
