Where: Microsoft Teams Meeting
You are invited to join us at the virtual Book launch of Selma James’ much anticipated follow-up to her first anthology: Our Time is Now: Sex, Race, Class and Caring for People and Planet on Friday 3rd September, 1-2pm BST with comments from Shraddha Jain, Manasi Misra and Katie Cruz.
For over sixty years, Selma James has been organizing from the perspective of unwaged women who, with their biological and caring work, reproduce the whole human race—whatever else they do. This work goes on almost unnoticed everywhere, in every culture. It is not prioritized economically, politically, or socially, and women are discriminated against and impoverished for doing it. For further information on the new book and Selma James please see the attached poster.
All the best,
