Format: Paperback
This is exciting and thought-provoking material! Published in an inexpensive format, this bulletin brings together a number of reports and resolutions on women's oppression and the fight for women's liberation adopted by the Socialist Workers Party in the late 1970s.

These articles document the deep social changes that made possible the rise of mass women's movements in the 1960s and 1970s. They survey developments in many countries around the world, from the most developed capitalist powers, though neo-colonial and third world nations, to the countries of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. They record the impressive history of gains won, and the many challenges still to be met.
I particularly like the spirit of accomplishment and determination to really set society on a new footing that comes through these documents. They reflect the confidence coming out of years of participation in mass protest movements, and the reality of winning changes in women's place in modern society. There is rich material on the theoretical and political debate over the origins of women's oppression, its connection to class society, on norms and standards of conduct among revolutionaries, and the long-term perspective for building a new society free from oppression and exploitation.
I'd also recommend reading the Marxist classic The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State, by Frederick Engels; Problems of Women's Liberation and Is Biology Women's Destiny? by Evelyn Reed; Women and the Cuban Revolution, edited by Betsy Stone; and The Changing face of U.S. Politics: Working-Class Politics and the Trade Unions, by Jack Barnes.

Some day these documents will be reviewed and studied as important to the history of the world struggle for freedom, the struggle of working people, oppressed people, women for socialism. These are the document which the Socialist Workers Party with considerable input from young fighters in the Young Socialist Alliance, and fighters from sister organizations all over the world, charted its response, analysis, strategy and tactics for the women's liberation. This is to say this is the most important attempt by fighting workers, students, and youth, as marxists and fighters for women's rights to develop an analysis of the women's movement. This is not an analysis to be read in a book or spouted in a lecture, but a analysis written by and for women and men who were fighting the sharpest battles fo the women's movement inthe 1970s, for abortion rights, for the equal rights amendment, for the right of women to enter industrial and technical jobs, and facing the question of political capitalist and working class. These documents are a call to battle. Read them and join the struggles of socialist workers, of women, and men, fights that will add to the richnest of this document of struggle.

Format: Paperback
These documents are interesting in that they are not 'about' the women's liberation. Rather they are 'of' the women's liberation document, not from a women's group but from the Socialist Workers party. They center on what the party, the working class, and fighting women should DO to fight for women's liberation, how a revolutionary organization of workers should organize it self to fight for the goals of the movement, and to deal with new questions the movement has posed to the organization. We have several decades of documents in the series that begins with this volume. They belong on the shelves of every serious fighter for women's liberation and every serious fighter for the rights of working people.
I also recommend Women's Evolution, Revolutionary Dynamics of the Women's Liberation Movement, Abortion is a Woman's Right, Cuba and the Coming American Revolution, Marianas in Combat
