This vital new collection presents new Marxist-Feminist analyses of Capitalism as a gendered, racialized social formation that shapes and is shaped by specific nature-labour relationships. Leaving behind former overtly structuralist thinking, Marxist-Feminist Theories and Struggles Today interweaves strands of ecofeminism and intersectional analyses to develop an understanding of the relations of production and the production of nature through the interdependencies of gender, class, race and colonial relations. With contributions and analyses from scholars and theorists in both the global North and South, this volume offers a truly international lens that reveals the the vitality of contemporary global Marxist-Feminist thinking, as well as its continued relevance to feminist struggles across the globe.

'This volume is a true intellectual and political treasure trove. It establishes beyond any doubt that Marxist-Feminist thought is a vital resource for the struggles ahead.' Nancy Fraser, New School for Social Research 'Engaging with ideas of Marxism and Feminism among scholars and activists, this book is a rich source of arguments to rework both and bring Marxism and Feminist back to its historical and materialist premises in these "immaterial" neoliberal times.' Radha D'Souza, University of Westminster 'This valuable collection of papers, shows that Marxist-Feminist debate is alive and well. Contributors from around the globe tackle the theoretical and strategic issues we are now facing.' Lise Vogel, author of Marxism and the Oppression of Women 'A thought-provoking set of essays showing how contemporary Marxist-Feminist theory is vitally relevant for the crucial feminist questions of today, from gender oppression to care work to facing environmental crisis. Recommended reading for all scholars engaged in thinking deeply on how to change the world.' Wendy Harcourt, Erasmus University
