Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism

A spirited deeply researched exploration of why capitalism is bad for women and how when done right socialism leads to economic independence better labor conditions better work life balance and yes even better sex In a witty irreverent op ed piece that went viral Kristen Ghodsee argued that women had better sex under socialism The response was tremendous clearly she articulated something many women had sensed for years the problem is with capitalism not with us Ghodsee an acclaimed ethnographer and professor of Russian and East European Studies spent years researching what happened to women in c. Award winning author Kristen Ghodsee has written a handful of books exploring communism gender and ethnicity and after appreciating Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism I will be purchasing her other works to dip in and out of As soon as I read the synopsis for this I knew it was right up my street Having had an issue with capitalism for as long as I can remember I was not in need of convincing that adopting some socialist principles may be a better option for many people including women However the fascinating information provided had me completely engaged and I found it difficult to put it down I usually take my time with non fiction but not here She illustrates that communist ideology could lead to real improvements in women s literacy education professional training as well as access to health care the extension of paid maternity leave and a reduction of their economic dependence on menI understand that this is a divisive and controversial topic and politics often gets people hot under the collar but we owe it to ourselves to look for a better way instead of just accepting the way society and wealth currently work Sometimes I find that books such as these waffle on in an incoherent fashion but I felt the arguments here were easy to understand and to comprehend There are many examples from communist and post communist states that back up many of the points she makes I hope that this book gets the wide readership it deserves as the case it presents is a strong and convincing one Highly recommendedMany thanks to Bodley Head for an ARC I was not reuired to post a review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own

summary Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism

Xploitation she addresses motherhood and how having it all is impossible under capitalism Women are standing up for themselves like never before from the increase in the number of women running for office to the women's march to the long overdue public outcry against sexual harassment Interest in socialism is also on the rise whether it's the popularity of Bernie Sanders or the skyrocketing membership numbers of the Democratic Socialists of America It's become increasingly clear to women that capitalism isn't working for us and Ghodsee is the informed lively guide who can show us the way forward. The argument of this book can be summed up succinctly unregulated capitalism is bad for women and if we adopt some ideas from socialism women will have better lives p1This book is nothing short of fantastic Ghodsee provides an approachable examination of how economic and social leftism social democracy and state socialism basically provide a better sexual life for women and men Her main case studies are the state socialism of Russia and Eastern Europe with some focus on Central Europe the great Scandinavian countries that leftists are used to being lectured on Despite the Eurocentric and cis centred focus Ghodsee does an excellent job of detailing why socialism provides a much spiritually and sexually satisfying life for women by examining how women under socialism and social democracy are free from the burdens of capitalism and thus choose their true loves for marriage and companionship rather than making forced decisions under the reified logic of capitalism Alongside this Ghodsee provides a short description and portrait of important socialist women and one man who have helped advance women s sexual and economic liberation such as Rosa Luxemburg Valentina Tershekova and and Lily Braun This book reads like an extended article rather than a dense academic work and in her interview on RevLeftRadio she said this approach was intentional This is great because despite the seemingly narrow and rather specialised focus it helps to attract non academic readers into this too often forgotten history of socialist women who helped reform the world outside of a mostly Anglophone context I recommend this book to everyone and after you ve read it please watch Fox News response to Ghodsee s initial article for comic relief
