In Britain and many other countries there is a tremendous growth of feminist activism. In the past, during the Second Wave Women's Movement for instance, Marxist ideas played an important role in describing and shaping the politics of women's liberation. Not so much today. It is time to renew the link!

Can Marxist class analysis help us understand the roots of, and the reality of, women's oppression today?
What are the connections between class, sexism and other discriminations and oppressions?
Does Marxist analysis reduce all oppression to issues of economics, organisation of work or the politics of labour?
Does feminist politics unite all women? Why have some socialists been indifferent to, or even hostile to, feminism? What is the socialist left's record on women's liberation and how can it be improved?

Join us for this workshop and discussion. Everyone welcome.
