BORREGO, Arelys Esquenazi. Gender and capitalist relations of production: a reflection from a Marxist perspective. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.3, pp.471-483. ISSN 1982-0259.

This article aims to analyze the link between gender relations and capitalist production. The central idea is to explain that social production-reproduction in Capitalism necessarily generates, as a condition and result, social relations of class exploitation and gender oppression. In this sense, the need to understand gender, in its essence as a relationship of social production is highlighted. Similarly, different conceptions of gender are analyzed, highlighting some associated myths/fetishes. Subsequently, the different interrelationships established between capitalist relations of production and gender relations are analyzed from a more essential point of view; as well as its expression in the current stage of neoliberal globalization. The critique of Political Economy constitutes the methodological foundation of the analyzes developed throughout the article.

Keywords : Gender; Fetishism; Exploitation/Oppression; Capitalist production relations; Neoliberal globalization.
