International Conference “The strength of Critique: Trajectories of Marxism – Feminism”, 20-22 March, Berlin, Germany

More than 40 years ago, feminists among Marxists in many countries spoke out. They criticized the concept of labour that was then commonly used in Marxism, they criticized value theory, views on domestic labour and the family, the way of dealing and interacting with each other and with the nature around us, on the economy and wars, visions of the future and the urge for liberation. This conference, organized by the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, intend to pick up the threads. Many of those voices — and many who have since joined — will come together at a congress in order to investigate what has been left undone.

Participants at the conference will discuss successes and defeats as well as new projects with the intention of finding out together what has been gained so far, what we need to continue working on, what new issues are on the agenda, and how we can bundle our energies to achieve worldwide resonance to our demand to intervene.

What remains as fundamental as almost half a century ago is that socialist feminists join forces internationally: http://www.rosalux.de/event/52209/the-strength-of-critique-trajectories-of-marxism-feminism.html
