Marxist Feminism is a culturally revolutionary, economically left wing ideology who focuses on women's emancipation, gender equality, intersectionality, and the liberation of women through feminism and socialism.

Most of the times, she is depicted as an Authoritarian Leftist, even though there are also non-Authoritarian types.

Variants

Socialist Feminism

Socialist Feminism rose in the 1960's and 1970's as an offshoot of the feminist movement and New Left that focuses upon the interconnectivity of the patriarchy and capitalism.

Socialist Feminism is a two-pronged theory that broadens Marxist feminism's argument for the role of capitalism in the oppression of women and radical feminist theory of the role of gender and the patriarchy. Socialist feminists reject radical feminism's main claim that patriarchy is the only, or primary, source of oppression of women. Rather socialist feminists assert that women are oppressed due to their financial dependence on males.

History

Beliefs

Marxist Feminism believes that the oppression of women is directly caused and reinforced by Capitalism in order to increase the exploitation of the working class. According to Marxist Feminists, Patriarchy allows Capitalists to both keep female workers underpaid by threatening to replace them with "better working" men, as well as also more exploit male workers by threatening to replace them with "less demanding" women. So, by intentionally putting male and female workers at odds with each other bourgeoisie are preventing the proletariat from uniting against them.

MarxFem also argues that on top of the regular Capitalist exploitation female workers are also additionally exploited by domestic work (the so called "kitchen slavery"). So, in order to reach a true gender equality the burden of housework and caretaking should be taken away from women to collective social services, such as kindergartens, public kitchens, and public laundries.

Additionally, a lot of Marxist Feminists are opposed to family unit and the institution of marriage. According them, family was fundamentally created as a way to secure and reinforce private property rights, and marriage is a form of legalizing the woman's status as a property. As an alternative to family, Marxist Feminism advocates for sexual liberation and Free Love, while making raising children the responsibility of the whole community, rather than individual parents.

In MarxFem's view, one of the ways of achieving her goals is the creation of the special state-backed "Women's Committees", run by dedicated Marxist Feminists. Their role would be to directly promote and defend women's rights on the local and national level; propose and prepare gender equality related laws; and also agitate, educate, organise, and generally help working class women all across the country.

Marxist Feminism despises Bourgeois Feminism, saying that female Capitalists are oppressing the working women just as much as the male ones do. It also opposes Radical Feminist idea that the social status of women is somehow linked to their innate biological qualities, arguing of it instead being the direct product of the class society.
