Selma James joins us to discuss her more than six decades working at the intersection of feminism and Marxism, and what a caring economy might actually look like. But first: Pakistan responds to blasts that kill 70 by detaining over 5,000 suspects — we talk to Rafia Zakaria; and Governor Brown rolls out a deal that would raise California’s minimum wage to $15 per hour – capping a very strange round of capitol sausage-making that saw two competing ballot initiatives from different arms of the same union – we talk to Tom Ammiano.
- Rafia Zakaria, attorney and columnist for DAWN, Pakistan’s largest English-language newspaper
- Tom Ammiano, recently termed-out Assemblymember representing San Francisco; also co-host of the KPFA podcast, the Tom and Tim Show
- Selma James, co-author of the women’s movement classic The Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community, co-founder of the International Wages for Housework Campaign and coordinator of the Global Women’s Strike.
