Revolutionary feminism seeks to identify the material basis for the sexual oppression of human beings, and the important role that sexual oppression and patriarchal and heterosexual violence play in the perpetuation of the super-exploitation of women and nations. Through over a decade of research and study on the proletarianization of women and nations, Silvia Federici states, “sexual hierarchies, we found, are always at the service of a project of domination that can sustain itself only by dividing, on a continually renewed basis, those who it intends to rule.”

As Marxists and materialists, we must reject any argument that limits gendered experiences of oppression to cultural, social, or ideological forms. We begin with an economic analysis of how capitalism reinforces gender norms and expectations of women’s traditional reproductive and productive roles as women. We identify how capitalism actively perpetuates patriarchy and gendered culture to propagate the super-exploitation of women to maximize of capital growth for an international bourgeoisie.

We must stand against the gross structural violence against women, and incorporate a strong analysis of the role that violence against women, in particular Indigenous women and women of colour, plays in the continual expansion of capitalism. As revolutionary feminists we reject a rigid gender binary and embrace true expressions of human love and sexuality that are non-exploitative and non-subjugating. We must stand against heterosexism and violence against LGBTQ individuals and communities.

However, we also realize that sexual liberation and the dismantling of an oppressive and often violent gendered binary will not necessarily dismantle capitalism. Human sexual and reproductive freedom from subjugation and violence is bound to economic transformation. Our demands for sexual and reproductive freedom must be connected to a struggle for total economic and social transformation and for a classless society based on reciprocal relations of collaboration.

  • Thanks dude who said "spank you" to me instead of "thank you". It's been a few days since a man reminded me that he feels entitled to my body. Glad you got to have your little joke, now I get to feel unsafe and completely objectified.

“This gendering of Israel’s war on Gaza is conversant with discourses of the War on Terror and, as Laleh Khalili has argued persuasively, counter-insurgency strategy and war-making more broadly. In this framework, the killing of women and girls and pre-teen and underage boys is to be marked, but boys and men are presumed guilty of what they might do if allowed to live their lives. Furthermore, these boys and men are potentially dangerous not only to the militaries that occupy them, but to those womenandchildren who actually are civilians. The young boys, after all, may grow up to be violent extremists. Thus, kill the flesh—extinguish the potential.”
