Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library

In the Spirit of Alexandra Kollontai
Socialism, International Women’s Day, and the Russia Revolution

As Alexandra Kollontai noted, International Women’s Day is not a special day for women alone, it is a historic and memorable day for the workers and peasants of the whole world. On this day in 1917, the Russian women raised the torch of proletarian revolution and set the world on fire. With the Russian revolution and the Soviet Union and women gained full legal equality and benefits still unknown in the imperialist West. And so, working women’s day is a double celebration for us.
Our speaker, Eugene E Ruyle, independent Marxist and author of Rethinking Marxist Anthropology, will discuss the historical and contemporary significance of March 8, 1917 and 2017. Gwen “GG” Winter will also discuss her experiences in Soviet Russia in 1983-89.
