Event Description

Curious about why feminism is so crucial to winning a socialist revolution?

Come to the Red Banner Reading Circle where we’ll discuss Murry Weiss on Women’s Emancipation & the Future of the Fourth International.

A brilliant Marxist and a founder of the U.S. Trotskyist movement, Weiss critiques how sexism led the Fourth International (FI), an organization founded by Leon Trotsky to advance the struggle of international socialism, to ignore feminist revolt and to ban women’s caucuses in the 1970s. Weiss also warns that the FI’s opportunist refusal to confront the Socialist Workers Party when it oriented toward the most privileged white male trade unionists and abandoned fundamental Trotskyist principles would undermine the drive for working class liberation. We’ll discuss why revolution without women's leadership is out of tune with the music of fundamental change.

We’ll get together every Tuesday, thru September 21st, at 7:00pm at the Bread and Roses Center 819 N. Killingsworth St, Portland. (Trimet Bus lines #4 and #72). Join in at any time. Sponsored by the Freedom Socialist Party.

Snacks will be provided for a donation. The document is available at the Bread & Roses Center bookstore for $5.00. For more information call 503-240-4462 or email fsp@igc.org.
