Socialism and Democracy is looking for someone to review:
ABOLITIONIST, SOCIALIST FEMINISM
By Zillah Eisenstein, Monthly Review Press, 2019.
In this vibrant,
politically personal essay, Zillah Eisenstein asks us to consider what
it would mean to thread "socialism" to feminism; then, what it would
mean to thread "abolitionism" to socialist feminism. Finally, she asks
all of us to consider what it would mean to
risk everything to abolish white supremacy.
If we are to create a revolution that is totally liberatory,
we need to pool together in a new working class, building a radical
movement made of movements. Eisenstein gathers almost half a century of
her antiracist socialist feminist work, and asks us not to be limited by
reforms, but to radicalize each other on differing fronts.
The genius force demanding that we abolish white supremacy can also
create a new "we" for all of us--a humanity universally accepting of our
complexities and differences. We are in uncharted waters, but that is
exactly where we need to be.
