Book launch event for "Women Fight Back: The centuries-long struggle for liberation"Added to the calendar on Thursday Nov 2nd, 2017 3:45 PM
"Women Fight Back" by Donna Goodman traces the historical evolution of a movement that has thoroughly transformed society and is in need of militant revival today. Goodman highlights the contributions of working-class, Black, Latina, queer and other oppressed women in the fight for women’s equality. The book compares the status of women in the U.S. and other capitalist societies with women under socialism and reviews the challenges of organizing today in the era of Trump and into the future.
Donna Goodman, a long-time partisan of the struggle for women’s liberation, recounts how women in the United States confronted a whole society – from the legal system to popular culture to home life — that was immersed in blatant sexism, discrimination and anti-woman violence.
