Description

This chapter addresses the property relation in capitalism and its impact on economically impoverished women of color. It highlights some of the specific ways in which race and gender work together to sustain capitalist relations of production. The chapter questions the common sense notion that private ownership is "natural" and that "needs" can be determined, differentiated, and "outlawed" by social class. It points us toward achieving a new humanity in which all living things have an equal right to exist with dignity and in which rather than amassing "things" we become a people that seek to develop fully what it means to be human--beyond necessity.
