• Welcome to the System Change Not Climate Change Community Forum. The Forum's goal is to promote exchange of information, discussion, and debate among ecosocialists and other activists who share our belief that capitalism is driving climate change and that a radical international grassroots movement can stop it.

A post that makes clear why groups on the left must look carefully at reproductive labor within [ecosocialist] circles

Read this account of a dedicated and passionate member of a socialist organization who has stepped back from her involvement with a party because of misogyny and the leadership's patriarchal biases. This is not to say that I find this a serious problem in SCNCC. The opposite is usually the goal if not the result. But analytical texts continue to discuss gendered and sexual orientation issues as well as the concept of reproductive labor as they require only a sentence or two in a longer article. That tendency is just not going to cut it.
