For a Feminist Socialism by Simone Morgen

Why a Feminist Socialism?  Why, indeed?  Isn't Rosa Luxemburg a social icon?  Don't socialism's core values of equal treatment of all persons, without prejudice or disparate treatment, address feminist concerns? 

From:  Democratic Left, Winter 2013.  Read the article!

Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.
