What Liberal Feminism Leaves Out ❧ Current Affairs
==
I think one of the reasons that liberal feminists tend to concentrate on office microaggressions, media representation, and shitty boyfriends is that these problems are relatively easy to talk about. The fact that your clothes are made by impoverished women in factories in Bangladesh demands much more difficult conversations, and something beyond even those difficult conversations: activism, organizing, and systemic change. American women endure a great deal of misogyny. We also sit on top of a tower of misogyny, and refuse to look down.

Sexual pleasure isn’t the sole key to women’s freedom – just ask sex workers and Muslim women | The Independent
==
Sex workers often care little about the liberal imagination of sex positivity. It’s work. To view sex solely as enjoyment and for pleasure is to thoroughly disregard labour politics – it discredits sex for work rather than just for pleasure, and by extension, narrowly defines politics of pleasure that leaves no room for relationships with sex to be redefined.

Here's why we've got no time for Jess Phillips | gal-dem
==
61 of the 63 most diverse constituencies did actually vote Labour last week, so we can only assume that by “working class” Jess is referring to white voters.

This Labour meltdown has been building for decades | Labour | The Guardian
==
Giving workers stakes in firms, a green new deal, free broadband: each one came well-intentioned but bedecked in question marks. Any radicalism that fails to ask the really thorny questions isn’t radical at all. In Britain in 2019, those include: against rampant inequality and climate change, what’s the economy for? What do the public actually want from politics and economics?
==
Tony Blair and Gordon Brown pretended some new skills-based economy lay around the corner and parachuted their own chosen people into these safe seats. Thinktankers, union HQ bureaucrats, ex-student politicians: all found careers and weekend homes for themselves.

Reflections from the doorstep - Dan Evans- Kanu - Medium
==
Once I had made common ground with people, I encountered no prejudice, and little rugged individualism. I did this by talking the language of class, which is something the left have not done well, even under Corbyn. When I asked them about public services, about the Labour manifesto and its promises, they were very enthused, and yes, even those people who had voted Tory or who were abstaining because they ‘hated all politicians’ (Corbyn in this sense undeniably reaped the disillusionment sowed by Blair and Mandelson).

A Corbyn-led coalition could take power in days - and not just as caretaker | openDemocracy
==
An election right now, when government has done nothing significant for ordinary people in years, leaving a vacuum of cynicism and broken dreams into which the hate-mongers and their moneymen have poured?
