Women have been fighting for our freedom for centuries and yet we are still raped, beaten, enslaved–treated as less than human. We will never be free under capitalism, which has only made women’s lives worse and now threatens our existence with climate chaos.

Raya Dunayevskaya saw in the struggle of women–unseparated from Marx’s concept of “revolution in permanence”–the Reason of revolution that would not stop until everyone experienced freedom.
