    Abstract:
    This project recovers what we call a “Marxist Feminist eye” in critical educational research. We begin by tracing the roots of this project, discussing the gender disparity present in the traditionally-cited literature of critical pedagogy. Next, we share a brief history of Marxist Feminist work, looking at educational research by Madeleine Arnot, Anne Marie Wolpe, Rosemary Deem, and Linda Valli. These relatively unknown Marxist Feminist perspectives from the 1970s and 1980s show how capitalist and patriarchal forces mutually constitute. Fi-nally, we expand upon this framework to understand multiple intersections of exploitation and oppression, such as race, ability, sexuality, nationality and others. Finally, we highlight how the Marxist Feminist eye is useful in understanding ourselves and educational spaces within our neoliberal context.
