André Léo

  • The fact is that ADC is just a substitute man and I will refer to ADC as 'The Man' from now on as it makes the whole issue a lot more clear.

    • André Léo,
    • "ADC: Marriage to the State," in Anne Koedt, Ellen Levine, and Anita Rapone, eds., Radical Feminism ()
  • The ADC mother learns that there are two kinds of housewives, the 'good' ones and the 'bad' ones. The 'good' ones do the same work as she does but they are still living with a man who 'provides' them with their needs from his pay for his work. The 'bad' ones are those who are not living with or being paid for by a man and so the state replaces him in the form of an ADC check ('The Man').
