Description: 
Feminist analysis is crucial for our understanding of male, white supremacist, and imperialist capitalism as a whole. Yet women’s liberation has too often been misunderstood and denigrated by many on the Left. Our speakers will talk about the relationship between feminism and the Left, and why it’s important for Leftists to study feminist theory and history, as well as why feminists should study Marxism. We will examine history, how the feminist movement’s relationship to the Left has evolved, and why a viable revolutionary movement needs to center feminist praxis, and fight to be inclusive of working class women from all backgrounds.
