May 9: Feminism for the 99% - A Manifesto, with Tithi Bhattacharya

On May 9, the IIRE is hosting a discussion around ‘Feminism for the 99 %. A manifesto’ with three speakers:

Tithi Bhattacharya is one of the authors of the manifesto. Inspired by the new wave of feminist activism worldwide, Tithi and her co-authors Cinzia Arruzza and Nancy Fraser argue that feminism should not start – or stop – with the drive to have women represented at the top of their professions. Rather, feminism must focus on those at the bottom, and fight for the world they deserve.

New publication: Facing the Apocalypse. Arguments for Ecosocialism

We are facing a multifaceted threat to life the planet. From a defence of the remarkable ecological content of classical Marxism – lost during the 20th century to the rise of productivism – Facing the Apocalypse. Arguments for Ecosocialism by Alan Thornett,  is an appeal to the socialist left to take the ecological crisis far more seriously. Thornett engages directly with major debates such as the rising human population and carbon pricing that remain unresolved on the socialist left.
