Capitalism and Women's Health

Socialism 2018

July 05, 2018

This talk will present an internationalist perspective on how global capitalism has shaped and continues to shape health disparities among women due to women’s role in social reproduction, the neoliberal destruction of welfare services and growing class inequality.

We will put forward ideas about how oppression gets into our bodies and how we must connect a struggle for health justice with a politics of socialist transformation of society.
