Call in: This Girl is on Fire! This Generation’s Women’s Movement

This girl is on fire! 
She’s got her feet on the ground, 
and she’s not backing down.

The lyrics to Alicia Keys’s song “Girl on Fire” sum up this generation’s women’s movement. 

Almost a century after women won the right to vote, why are economic, reproductive, and marriage rights still so bitterly contested and challenged in U.S. society today?

During this year’s Women’s History Month we ask, is the assault on the labor movement linked to the assault on women? 

What’s behind the recent attempts to legitimize rape and to expand the government’s limitations on abortion in many states? Why does the ultra-right continue to use the oppression of women as a primary tool for its divisive political tactics?

Please join Lisa Bergmann, National Coordinator of the Young Communist League USA, for a presentation on the state of the struggle for women’s rights today and the important role of young women. At the age of 31 Lisa has a decade of experience in social justice movements. As a union organizer she focused on service industries, where women of color and immigrant women make up the majority of the workforce.

    The Communist Party USA is a working class organization founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL.

    The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign.

    But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism.

    We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.

Hello

Ya know i was under the impression that we lived in
a “misandry” . Women in our politically correct society
have extraordinary “power” in the courts(divorce) and everyday life. A women, at a gym or health club for example can accuse a man of “excessive staring” that can actually get his membership revoked or on the job get him fired. They have a tremendous excess
“pull”.

Women’s rights went way beyond equality into oppression.

Thus, we, the men of the US, stand up against feminists and all that they represent.

We’ll take the country back.
