FEMINISM FOR THE 99%
A discussion on a feminism that is anticapitalist, eco-socialist and antiracist, introduced by Sara Farris and Susan Pashkoff.

 

Wednesday 4 Marc. Doors open: 7pm
Housmans Bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road, N1 9DX (Kings Cross)

Taking as its inspiration the new wave of feminist militancy that has erupted globally, this manifesto makes a simple but powerful case: feminism shouldn’t start—or stop—with the drive to have women represented at the top of their professions. It must focus on those at the bottom, and fight for the world they deserve. And that means targeting capitalism. Feminism must be anticapitalist, eco-socialist and antiracist.

Sara Farris is a Senior Lecturer at Goldsmiths University of London. She has written on racism, nationalism, gender and migration. She is the author of In the Name of Women’s Rights. The Rise of Femonationalism (Duke UP 2017).

Susan Pashkoff is writes for Socialist Resistance.

Feminism for the 99%, published by Verso Books, has been translated in 20 languages.
