Women's Fightback

Submitted by Anon on 5 March, 2006 - 11:51

During the 1980s our women activists issued a paper aimed at building
the women's movement on the basis of class politics. Women's
Fightback was launched at a conference of 500 women in 1980.

During the miners' strike of 1984-5 Women's Fightback produced strike
bulletins created and circulated by women in pit villages across the
country. It played a role in "Women against Pit Closures". Women's
Fightback petered out in the late 1980s, as the Labour Party women's
sections and the feminist movement declined, but our commitment to
socialist-feminist organisation remains.
