This talk will present an internationalist perspective on how global capitalism has shaped and continues to shape health disparities among women due to women’s role in social reproduction, the neoliberal destruction of welfare services and growing class inequality. On a national level, how do race, class, and gender interact to create stark health disparities among groups of women in the United States?  We will put forward ideas about how oppression gets into our bodies and how we must connect a struggle for health justice with a politics of socialist transformation of society.
