Marxism and Feminism
Edited by Shahrzad Mojab
Global events such as economic crisis, social unrest and militarization affect women disproportionately; however women are also leading struggles against oppression and exploitation around the world.
In the context of a renewed interest in Marxist theory among many women activists and academics, Marxism and Feminism reassesses previous debates and seeks to answer pressing questions: how should we understand the relationship between patriarchy and capitalism? How can we envision a feminist project which emancipates both women and society?
This collection presents a class-focused perspective which addresses capitalism, patriarchy and racism. Through keyword concepts it presents a contemporary and accessible Marxist-Feminist analysis on a host of issues. With contributions by both renowned scholars and new voices, this book is set to become the foundational text for modern Marxist-Feminist thought.
