365 Fifth Ave, Room c203
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. Join a discussion with Sharon Smith that takes up issues of women’s oppression from a Marxist perspective— focusing on the centrality of race and class—amid the stirrings of a new movement today.
SMITHSHARON SMITH is the author of Subterranean Fire: A History of Working-Class Radicalism in the United States. Her writings appear regularly in Socialist Worker and the International Socialist Review.
