What is Marxist-Feminism?
Friday 3 November 2017, 7pm
Facilitated by Stephanie Spoto

What is the function of domestic labor under capitalism? Why were women pushed out of the factories after the war? How can we understand the “unhappy marriage of Marxism and feminism”? This seminar will look at the works of Angela Davis, Silvia Federici and other key Marxist and feminist thinkers to explore the nature of the feminist movement in relation to anti-capitalist movements.

Readings (available for free at oldcapitolbooks.com):

--Angela Davis, “The Approaching Obsolescence of Housework: A Working-Class Perspective”
--The Making of Capitalist Patriarchy: Interview with Silvia Federici
--Anne Ferguson and Rosemary Hennessy “Feminist Perspectives on Class and Work”, The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

This event is free and open to everyone.
