The 2006 Uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico, has been routinely compared to the Paris Commune in its character and scope. With three thousand barricades in the state capital, hundreds of thousands of participants, and hundreds dead or dissapeared, it is often referred to as a pre-revolutionary moment. «Women in Uprising: the Oaxaca Commune, the State, and Reproductive Labor» is a text written by Barucha Peller focusing on the Oaxaca uprising in 2006 and the struggles faced by women within the movement, in part from the militarized state and also from men involved in the uprising. Using information gathered during her time in Oaxaca and interviews with housewives, it is an influential piece written through a Marxist-feminist lens and has been translated into multiple languages. It continues to offer key insight into the unique experiences of working class women in radical settings. Join Tubman-Brown members and Barucha Peller to explore these topics and the continuing struggles faced by women and marginalized folks within revolutionary tendencies.
