Gayle Rubin's politics

Does anyone know about the politics of American materialist feminist theorist Gayle Rubin?

she was highly influential in socialist-feminist circles in the '70s in USA but it's been so long since I read her I think I will refrain from commenting further.

She was clearly Marxist, although I do not know to what current she belonged. If it serves as an example, she was mentioned in Horowitz's book about American leftist professors.

Never heard of her and had to do a wiki check-out

Seems she has done wonders for the leather industry
