Clara Zetkin

JOHN RIDDELL ON ‘THE COMMUNIST WOMEN’S MOVEMENT (1921-26)’

 

Dear friends

My working paper, “The Communist Women’s Movement (1921-26)” is available at: www.johnriddell.wordpress.com

To my knowledge, this is the first English-language study of the world Communist women’s organization launched by Clara Zetkin with Lenin’s active support.

My study concludes as follows:

“The Communist women stood for the consistent pursuit of militant unity of the workers’ movement. They sought to unite women from all social layers who were prepared to actively oppose evils of capitalism. They favoured an adroit search for common ground with non-Communist currents among women and in the labour movement. In doing so, they played a significant role in shaping the leadership of the Communist International as a whole.

“This is perhaps their most important legacy to us. The Communist Women’s International prefigures the leading role of women in movements for social progress both today and tomorrow.”
