Cinzia Arruza préside une discussion sur le genre au Forum de Gauche

Ces derniers vingt ans, les études concernant le genre et plus particulièrement la théorie « queer » ont mis en question l’approche marxiste de l’oppression de genre. Ces études préconisent la nécessité de dépasser une approche basée sur une hiérarchie des priorités concernant les différentes oppressions. Au Forum de Gauche de cette année, le samedi 19 mars 2011, Cinzia Arruzza, membre de l’IIRE a présidé une discussion sur ce défi : « Le marxisme souffre-t-il de problèmes de genre ? »
