WHERE DOES THE ELECTION LEAVE THE GREEK LEFT?
Tsipras' crime is not only the imposition of new austerity, but destroying the optimism unleashed by SYRIZA coming to power.

WHAT WOULD AN NDP BREAKTHROUGH MEAN?

Sharon Smith
WOMEN AND SOCIALISM: CLASS, RACE AND CAPITAL
A fully revised and updated edition

More than forty years after the women’s liberation movement of the 1960s, women remain without equal rights. If anything, each decade that has passed without a fighting women’s movement has seen a rise in blatant sexism and the further erosion of the gains that were won in the 1960s and 1970s. Yet liberal feminist organizations have followed the Democratic Party, even as it has tacked rightward since the 1980s.

This fully revised edition of this book by Sharon Smith examines these issues from a Marxist perspective, focusing on the centrality of race and class. It includes chapters on the legacy of Black feminism and other movements of women of color, and the importance of the concept of intersectionality. In addition, Women and Socialism: Class, Race, and Capital explores the contributions of socialist feminists and Marxist feminists in further developing a Marxist analysis of women’s oppression amid the stirrings of a new movement today.
