The Women’s Movement We Fight For

Left Voice dossier for International Women's Day.

March 08, 2018

For International Women’s Day, Left Voice presents a dossier of articles explaining what kind of women’s movement we fight for. Drawing on the socialist women’s group Pan y Rosas (Bread and Roses), we fight for a women’s movement that is anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, against all forms of oppression and rooted in the working class.
