Suggested Reading: "Caliban and the Witch" by Sylvia Federici
"Undemocratic Legacies: First Wave Feminism and the Somocista Women's Movement in Nicaragua" by V. Gonzalez-Rivera
"Is Capitalism Gendered and Racialized" by Joan Acker
"The Dialectics of Sex" by Shulamith Firestone ("The Dialectics of Sex" was utilized to cover the history of the first wave feminism in the United States. For that reason we recommend the book merely for the first chapter. However, the author offers iffy analysis against Marx and misquotes Engels that makes their overall argument faulty. This work has been critiqued by Ghandy (CC member of the CPI) in her works, “Philosophical trends in the modern feminist movement.” Still recommend that chapter spoken about but keep that in mind when you read the works in its entirety)
Outro Music: "Rocky's Revenge" by Rocky Rivera
