The Fourth Intemational welcomes and champions the emergence of a new wave of struggles by women to end their centuries-old oppression. By fighting in the front lines of these battles, we demonstrate that the world party of socialist revolution can provide a leadership capable of carrying the struggle for women’s liberation through to its conclusion.
The basic Marxist positions on women’s oppression are part of the programmatic foundations of the Fourth International. But this is the first full resolution on women’s liberation adopted by the international. Its purpose is to set down our basic analysis of the character of women’s oppression, and the place the struggle against that oppression occupies in our perspectives for all three sectors of the world revolution: the advanced capitalist countries, the colonial and semi-colonial world, the workers states.
