Global events such as economic crisis, political turmoil, social unrest and militarization affect women disproportionately; however women are also leading socialist struggles against oppression and exploitation around the world. Within this context a renewed interest in Marxist theory among many women activists and academics is opening up fresh avenues for Marxist-feminist discourse. In this new collection authors reassess the debates about Marxism and feminism and reject the notion of 'divorce' between them, seeking to answer pressing ideological questions: how can we better understand the relationship between patriarchy and capitalism, or imperialism and fundamentalism? How can we envision a feminist project which emancipates both women and society? This collection presents a class-driven perspective which addresses capitalism, patriarchy and racism. Through keyword concepts it demystifies the historical development of feminist ideas about revolutionary social transformation and presents a contemporary Marxist-feminist analysis founded on dialectical historical materialism. With contributions by renowned scholars and exciting new voices from across Asia, the Americas and Europe, this book is the foundational text for modern Marxist-feminist thought.
