Sharon Smith (writer)

Data de nascimento: 1956

Sharon Smith is an American socialist writer and activist. She is the author of Subterranean Fire: A History of Working-Class Radicalism in the United States and Women and Socialism: Essays on Women's Liberation.

Women and Socialism, published by Haymarket Books in 2005, is a collection of essays on the origin of women's oppression, the struggle for abortion rights, the political trajectory of mainstream feminism, the place of women in Islam, and the ways socialism could, in Smith's view, overcome women's oppression. In the course of some of these essays, Smith takes up an argument she had previously made in a lengthy article in International Socialism, arguing against identity politics, which she views as a mistaken approach for feminism or any other movement against oppression. In a new "fully revised and updated edition" Women and Socialism: Class, Race, and Capital, 2015, she expands on « social reproduction theory ».

Subterranean Fire, published by Haymarket in 2006, is a history of the US labor movement from the late 19th century through the 21st, focusing on the role of its left wing.

Smith writes regularly for left-wing publications including CounterPunch, Dissident Voice, and the International Socialist Review. She was a leading member of the International Socialist Organization.

Citações Sharon Smith (writer)

„Intersectionality is a concept for understanding oppression, not exploitation.“

—  Sharon Smith (writer)

Many Black feminists acknowledge the systemic roots of racism and sexism, but place far less emphasis than Marxists on the connection between the system of exploitation and oppression. Marxism is necessary because it provides a framework for understanding the relationship between oppression and exploitation and also identifies the agency for creating the material and social conditions that will make it possible to end both oppression and exploitation: the working class. Workers not only have the power to shut down the system, but also to replace it with a socialist society, based on collective ownership of the means of production. Although other groups in society suffer oppression, only the working class possesses this collective power. So the concept of intersectionality needs Marxist theory to realize the kind of unified movement that is capable of ending all forms of oppression. At the same time, Marxism can only benefit from integrating left-wing Black feminism into our own politics and practice.
