Through columns, essays and speeches spanning 40 years, Clara Fraser’s book provides a compelling exploration of the meaning of socialist feminism, linking the power of Marxist theory and working-class feminism. Selected readings will illuminate the interconnections of racism and sexism, lessons from battles for queer rights and free speech, and strategies for overcoming obstacles to revolution.
