Selma James – one of the world’s leading socialist feminists and national co-ordinatior of the Global Women’s Strike – has confirmed she will join the debates at Mutiny’s Work on Trial.
James is co-author of the women’s movement classic The Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community, founder of the International Wages for Housework Campaign, and was the first spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes. Her life is an incredible inspiration, and her Wikipedia page well worth a read.
Global Women’s Strike is a network of grassroots women which brings together actions and initiatives around the world. The Strike demands that society “Invest in Caring Not Killing”, and that military budgets be returned to the community starting with women, the main carers everywhere.
James is also the author of Sex, Race and Class; Women, the Unions and Work; Marx and Feminism; Hookers in the House of Lords and is currently editing a collection of works called Jailhouse Lawyers: Prisoners Defending Prisoners Vs the USA.
The world renowned activist will be speaking in the second Mutiny discussion which is titled Work Ethics and will be interrogating the nature of work within modern capitalist societies.
Mutiny announced today that tickets for the revolutionary event Work on Trial have gone on sale online – with buy-one-get-one-free on offer for a limited time.
The tickets are priced just £5 or £2.50 each if you book before the night. The price is exceptionally low and all the money goes towards publicity.
