Marxist Feminism

Marxist feminism is a product of Marxism and feminism. This intersection of frameworks aims to liberate women by addressing conditions which lead to oppression. For instance, one identified source of female oppression is their exclusion from productive labor. Hence, some Marxist feminists advocated that domestic work must be compensated by the government; this way, women’s work will be better recognized. Other advocacies include implementing child care services for working mothers, providing protection, health care, and acceptance to sex workers, and fighting capitalism.
