Feminist Fightback

Feminist Fightback are a feminist collective that aims to create an explicitly anti-capitalist space within the feminist movement and strengthen specifically socialist, anarchist and anti-capitalist feminist voices within left wing political organizing. We also aim to provide an organizing space for self-identifying women, non-binary people and anyone in need of feminist solidarity. For us, ‘intersectionality’ is central. Racism, sexism and heteronormativity are structuring elements of capitalism; they don’t just exist in parallel to it. Key to our political practice is our reproductive justice activism. Although the legal right to end a pregnancy is essential to reproductive justice, this model goes further, placing so-called ‘choices’ about reproduction into the wider social context, and linking legal rights related to reproduction with social justice. It takes into account the economic, social and health factors that affect women’s ability to make and realise decisions about their reproduction, and shows us how class, race, sexuality and other systems result in a situation where some people have more ‘choice’ than others.
