Around the world, women are part of a bold resistance to reactionary social and political forces. In Latin America, women and indigenous people are providing vibrant workingclass leadership against crippling neoliberal trade agreements. In Mexico, “Adelita” brigades shut down congress to oppose privatization of the nationalized oil industry.
Now is the time to mobilize women and feminist men who are open to revolutionary alternatives to capitalism. The Radical Women conference is an opportunity to grapple with ideas, examine the limitations of reformism, gain the confidence to challenge the system, and build the ranks of socialist feminists.
During the months of August and September Radical Women will be discussing two of the papers to be presented at the conference. Come join us at our meetings on the second and fourth Monday evenings of the month. Meetings are held at the Bread and Roses Center, 819 N Killingsworth.
