Come to The Public School for a conversation with legendary activist Selma James on the themes of her recent PM Press book ‘Sex, Race & Class’.

Gwen Moore (D-WI) and the Women’s Option to Raise Kids Act (WORK Act HR 4370) introduced by Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA).
Selma James is the founder of the International Wages for Housework Campaign and helped launch the Global Women’s Strike. She is the author of numerous publications, including The Power of Women and the Subversion of Community, Strangers and Sisters, and Wageless of the World.
