Not just a Woman. The Agitation Tour in the US and the Proletarian Feminism of Eleanor Marx
Keywords:Eleanor Marx, Socialism, Feminism, Organization, American Workers Movement
On 31 August 1886 Eleanor Marx left Liverpool for Chicago for a trip that would be the perfect occasion to sharpen her feminist thought. Inquiring the American workers movement and women condition, Eleanor found the problem of the day. “How should woman organize?” became the crucial question of her socialist activism among women but also among men. The United States were the ground of an essential transformation of socialist politics, where sex, class and race were already political weapons the workers movement had to learn to use for their own freedom.
