Fortunes of Feminism: From State-Managed Capitalism to Neoliberal Crisis - Nancy Fraser

I am so excited that this book exists!! I CAN'T WAIT to read it. I'm SO HAPPY!

It combines class, economics, SERIOUS ECONOMICS, and feminism.

It's definitely something along the lines of Kollontai or someone I would have read in college.


Compares statist economics' effect on women with neoliberal economics' effect on women. I AM SO THERE!


When I saw this book, my jaw dropped and I got so excited; you have no idea.


This is how economics--hard economics--intersects with and affects women's lives.


THIS is the feminism I love to read.
