The revival of feminist discussion and activity since the late 2000s has drawn many new, younger feminists into writing and organising in Europe and North America. Emerging feminist movements around the world, in India, Turkey, the Middle East and elsewhere, fighting against oppressive political systems and stark economic inequalities, have thrown up new forms of struggle.
But what kind of overall feminist perspective do we need to radically change the world?
As revolutionary socialists fighting for a society based on human need not profit, Workers’ Liberty makes class struggle and radical social change central to our feminism. We are socialist feminists.
This book explores what “socialist feminism” might mean in the context of the latest “wave”, and global conditions.
