This Wednesday: Andrea D’Atri Presents the Book “Bread and Roses”

0

On March 17, Andrea D’Atri will be presenting the new English-language edition of her book “Bread and Roses: Gender and Class Under Capitalism.” The online event from the London radical booksellers Housmans will take place at 7pm GMT (London), 3pm EDT (New York), and 12pm PDT (Los Angeles). Free registration required.

Is it possible to develop a radical socialist feminism that fights for the emancipation of women and of all humankind?

Housmans is proud to welcome Andrea D’Atri to discuss her new publication with Pluto Press, Bread and Roses: Gender and Class Under Capitalism. Join us for a passionate journey through the history of feminism.

Andrea D’Atri, Bread and Roses: Gender and Class Under Capitalism.
Pluto Press is offering the book for 40% off — just £10.19 or US$12.16.

Using the concrete struggles of women, Andrea traces the history of the women’s and workers’ movement from the French Revolution to queer theory. She analyses the divergent paths feminists have woven for their liberation from oppression and uncovers where they have hit dead ends.

With the global working class made up of a disproportionate number of women, women are central in leading the charge for the next revolution and laying down blueprints for an alternative future. D’Atri makes a fiery plea for dismantling capitalist patriarchy.

This is an online event in Spanish, interpreting into English provided.

Speakers

Pan y Rosas is now one of the largest socialist women’s organizations in the world, with thousands of activists in various Latin American and European countries. D’Atri is also a leading figure in the Ni Una Menos movement against macho violence and supporting the right to abortion.

Interpreting into English by Isabel Ros López. Isabel was born a migrant and has been writing poetry and songs since childhood. An anti-imperialist feminist activist since adolescence. She wants to change the world with others, with you. Peace with social justice. Together. She performs, does community workshops, publishes and records when she can; mostly works full time to end violence against women and girls. She says that intersectional feminism rocks!
