Abstract / Description of output

The 2011 Historical Materialism Conference in London saw the launch of a Marxist Feminist set of panels. This issue is inspired by the success of those panels, and the remarkably sustained interest in reviving and moving beyond older debates and discussions. Its focus, social reproduction feminism, reflects the ongoing work and engagement with that thematic that has threaded through the conferences since 2011. This Introduction provides a summary overview of the social reproduction feminism framework, situating it within Marxist Feminist thinking and politics more generally, and calls on readers to consider its promise as an historical materialist approach to understanding capitalist social relations as an integrated totality.
