“Women have changed the world through an incredible and sustained activism based on a humanism that runs like a revolutionary red thread through an amazing array of actions, demonstrations and statements. This development is based on over 50 years of a movement that the founder of Marxist-Humanism, Raya Dunayevskaya, characterized as Woman as Revolutionary Force and Reason.’

“Today’s manifestations are most obviously seen in both the Women’s Marches, which were not limited to the U.S. but spread across the entire world; and what became the #MeToo movement, which likewise is now worldwide.”

–From: “#MeToo, Women’s Marches show the resistance deepens,” by Terry Moon

Many on the Left and the Right have ideas about where the movement is headed. Most predict that it will be swallowed by Democratic Party politics. Participate in a discussion on this question, including how can the revolutionary potential of this moment be sustained and deepened in the face of a worldwide growing fascism?

Terry Moon, women’s liberation activist and writer, Managing Editor of News & Letters, will lead off the discussion.
