    Kollontai and Revolution. A lecture by Professor Jodi Dean.

    Kollontai and Revolution. A lecture by Professor Jodi Dean.

    What can we learn from writer and revolutionary Alexandra Kollontai, and what does it mean to build working-class feminism today? A lecture by professor Jodi Dean. Alexandra Kollontai was one of the first to clearly articulate a program of working-class feminism. She fought tirelessly to overthrow the Tsar and after the revolution of 1917, worked to introduce essential programs and policies for women’s liberation. Her writing is a gift that both guides and inspires us- her political analyses hold lessons and methods for building working class feminism today, and her novels and short stories help us imagine the liberated woman after capitalism.

Awesome content from Awesome place

Excited to hear more of the Podcast. The People’s forum has a wide range of events and classes that I can’t always be there for. This is a great way to be in the loop. Great for political education and critical thought.
