Marxist-Feminist Reading List


Some of us have been reading and discussing the following texts, which grapple with questions raised by Marxist-feminism. The texts provide the basic conceptual tools for beginning to theorize the gender/sex system in its relation to the capitalist mode of production and overall system of social reproduction. We believe that any movement for a classless society needs to engage with the gendered division of labor (waged and unwaged) on both practical and theoretical levels.
