Today marks International Working Women’s Day. A day to look at the oppression of women historically and currently. It is clear that women still face huge levels of oppression. Women face a double shift of work under modern capitalism, having to work to make money and still taking the brunt of the childcare and household work into their remit.
As people who want to solve the oppression of women and build a world of freedom and liberty, we must ask ourselves what the root of women’s oppression is. Has the oppression of women existed forever? Or does it have a root and therefore a solution?
Laurie O’Connell discusses this situation here, bringing light to the origins of women’s oppression.
