In this lecture, Nancy Fraser situates the feminist’s movement in relation to three moments in the history of capitalism. First, the movement’s beginnings are located in the context of “state-organized capitalism.” Then, she considers the process of feminism’s evolution in the dramatically changed social context of rising neoliberalism. Finally, she contemplates the possible reorientation of feminism in the present context of capitalist crisis and US political realignment, which could start a shift from neoliberalism to a new form of social organization.
Lecture by Nancy Fraser, New School for Social Research and editor of Constellations.
