Marxist Feminism

Marxist Feminism came from the ideas of Karl Marx, which were used to understand the capitalist sources of the oppression of women. focus on the concerns of working women. They try to make people understand that housework and child care is still "real work". Taking care of children and a house is just as much work as being an engineer, of doctor. Even when women get paid jobs, they still get lower wages than men. Marxist feminism states that capitalism, which increases economic inequality, and unhealthy social relations between men and women, is the root of women's oppression.
