What’s In Our Name

“Lux” is short for Rosa Luxemburg, one of the most creative thinkers and organizers to shape the Marxist tradition. it’s a wink at traditional women’s magazines. and it’s a nod to the fact that in our vision of socialism, there is abundance for all.

Top-down efforts to convince us that the highest form of feminism is the girl boss have failed. No one believes today that we will be saved by the female CEO or presidential candidate. Instead, feminists are in pursuit of a NEW WORLD, at the forefront of struggles for police abolition, healthcare, and control over our work, looking toward a horizon beyond which everyone has access to food and shelter, to beauty and pleasure. We don’t want the paltry options we’ve been offered. We want it all.
