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. This fully revised edition 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 colour 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.
