A Call to Get the Declaration for Women’s Liberation Out Widely
Revolution calls on its international readership, and especially those living in the Middle East, to very broadly distribute our special issue entitled “A Declaration: For Women’s Liberation and the Emancipation of All Humanity.” (Download at revcom.us/a/158/Declaration-en.html.)
This Declaration exposes the oppression of women in class society, and goes beyond that to develop and deepen existing communist theory and theoretical analysis dealing with where this oppression comes from, why it exists, and what we have to do to get rid of it and all oppression as we emancipate all humanity. It lays bare all the paltry programs and moral and ideological bankruptcy of those who claim the mantle of women’s advance but only mean getting a “fair share” in the world as it is. It presents a vision of what socialism and communism could be like, building on and going beyond experience in socialist societies so far.
This Declaration urgently needs to get into the hands of people who are rising up against oppression—including the oppression of women—all over the Middle East. And you need to be a part of this. The Declaration can be found online at revcom.us/a/158/Declaration-en.html. Email, tweet and post this link everywhere. Post the entire issue when possible. Send us all your ideas for promoting and distributing this special issue. And anyone who wants to contribute to translating it should write us—send us drafts of your translations, and ideas on how you can assist in getting this special issue translated and out into the world.
