Movement Theorist and Organizer Selma James on North American Tour

This month several BtR locals are helping to coordinate a speaking tour by Selma James, a lifelong campaigner for women's rights and anti-racism and the founder of the International Wages for Housework Campaign. She is joined by Andaiye, a feminist organizer and author from Guyana, South America.

Selma is known for her groundbreaking contributions to understandings of capitalist exploitation. In the 1970s she argued that the housework and caring work women do outside of the market is the basis for the reproduction of the entire working class. She is a former member of CLR James's Johnson-Forest Tendency.
