Scholars and activists are paying increased attention to social reproduction theory--the idea that child care, education, family life and the roles of gender, race and sexuality, are central to understanding the relationship between economic exploitation and social oppression. But what does social reproduction theory have to say about the social construction of gender, and how can this theory guide the struggles for trans liberation and liberation from all gendered oppressions? This session will examine these questions.
