For Women’s Liberation through Socialist Revolution!
Steven Argue
International Women’s Day was started in New York in 1908 when women garment workers struck and 15,000 people marched through the streets demanding “For an eight hour day!”, “For the end of child labor!” and “For equal suffrage for women!” In subsequent years, the Socialist Party of America and the Socialist International started International Women’s Day in commemoration of the strike and demanding women’s liberation. By 1913, despite heavy tsarist repression, the Bolsheviks began organizing yearly celebrations of International Women’s Day in Russia. By 1917, Russia saw the most important celebration of International Women’s Day ever, with 90,000 garment workers striking, starting an uprising that brought down the 300 year Ramanov dynasty.
