This week we’re reading “Women in Uprising: The Oaxaca commune, the State and Reproductive Labor” by Barucha Calamity Peller from LIES volume 1 Pages 124-144.
Through revolt, the women de-mystified the dimensions of their penury, specifically the housewives’ sector of the Oaxaca Commune, who in their own terms defined their rebellion against capitalism and the state as directly correlated with their rebellion against their husbands and families in the domestic sphere.
