Anti-Imperialism Is Inseparable from Anti-Capitalism: A Socialist Feminist Perspective
With the narrative of justifying imperialist intervention in the name of women’s rights called into question by 20 years of disastrous U.S. occupation in Afghanistan, the space is open for rethinking what it means to take up the fight for women’s emancipation with a staunchly anti-imperialist perspective.

Contrary to the claims of bourgeois historians, demands for social reforms in Afghanistan — particularly in the realm of women’s rights — predate both the U.S. and Soviet occupations.
Liberal Feminism Is an Imperialist Project
U.S. imperialism is responsible for the conditions facing women in Afghanistan today and others like them all across the world. Liberal feminism, with its reliance on the imperialist capitalist state, will never liberate the working class and poor women.

Patriot Act 2.0: Biden’s Domestic Terrorism Laws Are a Danger to the Working Class
After last week’s violent demonstrations at the U.S. Capitol, Joe Biden has committed to passing new laws targeting domestic terrorism. But let’s be clear --- while he says the laws will help “fight” the Far Right, they will eventually be used to target the working class and the Left.
