News and Letters Committees invites you to a meeting on:
Women as Thinkers and as Revolutionaries in History and Today
Women’s struggles for freedom have been relentless from 1647, when the first maids’ petition was handed to the British Parliament to demand “liberty every second Tuesday,” through the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, to the struggle for reproductive justice today. The women who fought in the Civil Rights Movement blazed a trail now being deepened by women and LGBTQ people in the Black Lives Matter Movement.
What is it about women as thinkers and revolutionaries as developed by Raya Dunayevskaya’s Marxist-Humanism that speaks to moving this historic struggle forward now, in our age of reaction and counter-revolution?
Come to a free and open discussion led off by “World in View” columnist Gerry Emmett.
