Feminism for the 99%: A Manifesto at the Red May

  • The Elliott Bay Book Company 1521 Tenth Avenue Seattle, WA 98122 (map)

From three of the organizers of the International Women’s Strike: a manifesto for when “leaning in” is not enough. Feminism for the 99% (Verso) is a restless anti-capitalist feminism—one that can never be satisfied with equivalences until we have equality, never satisfied with legal rights until we have justice, and never satisfied with democracy until individual freedom is calibrated on the basis of freedom for all.” Come hear Cinzia Arruzza present this new book-length manifesto, co-authored with Tithi Bhattacharya and Nancy Fraser. Will it have the incendiary effect of a certain other Manifesto written by a man with a beard one hundred and seventy-one years ago? Red May hopes so.

This event is part of Red May, a month-long festival of radical art and thought. Our motto is: take a vacation from capitalism.
