Can the Working Classes Consciously Unite?

Silvia Federici, Jane Gordon, Lewis Gordon & Manny Ness

Silvia reports on women, gender-based violence and social reproduction, drawing connections between Latin America, especially Mexico and Argentina, and gender based violence in the US. She explores how gender violence impedes the development of political consciousness, while reproductive rights becomes a crucial terrain for the struggle against gender based discrimination and exploitation. Jane and Lewis address race and class questions around consciousness and revolutionary ethics. Manny reports on insurgent working class movements throughout the global south, with particular emphasis on South Africa.
