Gender and Education: The Revolutionary "Force and Reason" of Women
Download Full Text
This chapter on women’s “Revolutionary Force and Reason” considers women’s advancement in the context of a racialized and patriarchal global capitalist system. It dispels the myth that capitalism has given women greater opportunities, tracing the change in social conditions to some women’s lives to their own revolutionary struggles. Here we name the inequities among women within the U.S. and as a result of global capitalism, discussing how the increase in opportunities for middle class, predominantly White women in the U.S., comes at the detriment of BIPOC women, increasingly migrant women of the Global South, whose caring and working-class labor facilitates middle-class women’s access and entry into higher education and the professional labor market.
