The following is a video introduces the Argentine women’s group: Pan y Rosas. Featured in the video are Myriam Bregman, the Vice Presidential candidate for the Partido de Trabajadores Socialista (Socialist Workers Party), as well as Nicolas de Cano, the Presidential candidate who speak out for women’s rights,particularly a woman’s right to access an abortion. Also featured is one of the founders of Pan Y Rosas Argentina, Andrea D’Atri.

D’Atri also has an article, which she co-authored, featured in Left Voice Magazine.
The following is an excerpt from the article, “Women’s Emancipation in Times of Global Crisis.”

“The authors of this article believe that a ruthless critique of the misery bred by capitalism in all aspects of life, including subjective and interpersonal relationships, must be an integral part of our Marxist world view, our program and our strategy in the struggle to radically change class society. While we support all struggles that seek to wrest the best living conditions for the millions of people who are immersed in the most unimaginable indignities, we aim to achieve a stateless society without social classes: a society liberated from the chains of exploitation and all forms of oppression that pit human beings against each other.

Those of us who seek the liberation of humanity from destitution and humiliation can only come together from the point of view of the most violated among the exploited. For fundamental transformation we must look through the eyes of women, and it is from this point of view that we try to re-appropriate the Bolshevik way of thinking, while at the same time, understanding the profound social changes of the last century that led to new problems which must be taken into account.

We know that merely longing for communism will not bring it about, even when it is longed for by thousands or millions of exploited people. We must seek not only to establish a different order, but to overthrow the existing one. Any partial conquest that is obtained in the narrow margins of degraded democracies must be situated within this broader strategy.

This is the only real antidote to the post-feminist utopia of radical democracies and the dystopia of bureaucratic totalitarianism that betrayed the Bolshevik revolution and transformed it into its antithesis. In this way, women’s struggle for emancipation and a Marxist critique that is enriched by feminist contributions may emerge as a renewed socialist feminism waiting to see the light of day.”
