"Freedom is always
The freedom of dissenters"
This article is the first section of the Workers' Liberty pamphlet 'Comrades and Sisters', about socialism and women's liberation. It tells the story of women's struggle for liberation: from the French Revolution and the birth of feminism, through the fight for the vote, up to the 70s women's movement, Thatcherism and the backlash against feminism.
