International Women’s Day, Revolution, and Karl Marx’s Concept of the Man/Woman Relationship

DATE: Monday, March 8, 2010
International Women’s Day
TIME: 6:30 PM
PLACE: News & Letters Library
228 S. Wabash, Room 230, Chicago

Speaker: Terry Moon, women’s liberation activist and writer, “Woman as Reason” columnist for News & Letters

Today women face a world mired in wars and conflict from Congo to Afghanistan where they often face an unspeakable brutality. Yet what the dialectics of revolution reveal is that they never stop fighting for their freedom. That reality can be summed up in one word–Iran.

Whereas women on the ground never stop fighting for liberation, has theory matched their Reason? Many don’t see women’s struggle as part of Marxism, but as something that must be added on, or worse, women are told that they must wait until after revolution for freedom.
