The Socialism Series is a bi-weekly forum sponsored by the International Socialist Organization (ISO) to take up key questions facing the socialist movement and Left more broadly. In the next two months the series will focus on two themes: neoliberalism and the politics of oppression. We believe Marxism has a great deal to contribute to any understanding of these issues, and is indispensable for developing a strategy of resistance to both. We also believe that with a growing Left and an ever changing world, its important to continue to develop Marxism as a living and breathing theory around developments and questions we confront as activists.

This meeting of the Socialism Series will look at the ways that Marx’s insights in Capital have been updated by authors such as Lise Vogol, Martha Gimenez, Johanna Brenner, and others to develop a sophisticated understanding of the relationship between the central dynamics of capitalism and women’s oppression. Social Reproduction theory provides a way of understanding that link and how struggles against sexism and the unequal burden of women in the home is related to class struggles in the workplace.
