Join us for part two of our podcast series 'Women's liberation: The Marxist position' where we are republishing a talk by Laurie on the origins of women's oppression.

Rather, it arose with the rise of class society, and it can be done away with through revolutionary struggle. πŸ“š Read more on the origins of women's oppression over on our education hub: https://www.socialist.net/identity-oppression-liberation-marxism.htm πŸ“š Pick up a copy of Engels' classic text The Origins of the Family, Private Property, and the State from Wellred Books: https://wellredbooks.net/the-origin-of-the-family.html 🌍 Head to the website of the International Marxist Tendency for regular news, analysis and Marxist theory: https://www.marxist.com ✊ Get involved with Socialist Appeal today: https://www.socialist.net/links

please, please, please stop announcing how much time a speaker has left. It's more than annoying. Use visual cards or, if a webinar, a silent notification.
