Author name: Olivia Aguilar

Paper name: A Review of Feminist Perspectives on Work and Class.

In this paper, I reviewed an essay written by Hennessy and Ferguson titled "Feminist Perspectives on Class and Work." The essay talks about the relationship between women, and work and class throughout the pre- industrial times and modern times with regard to the waves of feminism. I provide arguments towards the strength of socialist and marxist feminist theories, as well as how to modernize some of these strong theories to be more intersectional and inclusive of LGBT women, and women of color.

KEYWORDS: class, race, LGBT, marxism, socialism, intersectionality, labor, socioeconomics, production, capitalism
