PRT Episode 18 - Marxist Feminism

What better way to ring in the New Year than this spicy episode on feminism, where we take shots at feminist movements of the past, men (of course) and some of the left. Special guest @socializm_ brings the fire. Y’all are guaranteed to either love it, or hate it. 

 Suggested Reading-

Caliban and the Witch by Silvia Federici

Undemocratic Legacies: First Wave Feminism and the Somocista Women's Movement in Nicaragua by V. Gonzalez-Rivera

Is Capitalism Gendered and Racialized? by Joan Acker

The Dialectic of Sex by Shulamith Firestone (The Dialectic of Sex was utilized to cover the history of the first wave feminism in the United States. For that reason we recommend the book merely for the first chapter. However, the author offers iffy analysis against Marx and misquotes Engels that makes their overall argument faulty. This work has been critiqued by Ghandy [CC member of the CPI] in her work “Philosophical trends in the modern feminist movement.” We still recommend that chapter spoken about but keep that in mind when you read the works in its entirety.)

 Outro Music: "Rocky's Revenge" by Rocky Rivera
