Arruzza’s contribution to Social Reproduction Theory, “From Social Reproduction Feminism to the Women’s Strike”, without any counter-examples provided by Bhattacharya or the other contributors, blurs the issue of where the power of the working class lies. As Arruzza explains, the women’s strike on International Women’s Day in   This study was an attempt to fill a lacuna in feminist and cultural theory; the role of class in the subjective experiences of women because, in her opinion, of the disappearance of class as a concept and working-class women as a group from feminist and.
