#3: T-Shirt Feminism

Danielle and José discuss whether the mainstreaming of feminism has sold it out to capitalist interests. Can we be both a feminist and a capitalist? Is capitalism inherently patriarchal? Does feminism require a kind of collective action that capitalism works to undermine? How does capitalism exploit women’s unpaid labor of childrearing and household care? Are ad campaigns that promote feminist ideas actually feminist or just another way to sell products? We end with recommendations for what we’ve been thinking about since the last episode.
