"On the Path to a Great Emancipation," March 8, 1929. Pravda:
Capitalist “democracy” has not and cannot give freedom to working and laboring women. Working women in all bourgeois countries are economically and politically enslaved. Middle class conventionality has a tenacious vice-grip on daily life. Advanced women workers and revolutionary women proletarians are persecuted. The most brutal blows of capitalist “rationalization,” unemployment, and hunger in the midst of plenty descend upon the female half of the proletariat. Fascism, Catholicism, and reformism with increasingly thoroughness exploit the historical backwardness of women workers in order to split apart the proletarian ranks and strengthen the position of imperialism. The temples of “national government”—what a thing to talk about!—are protected by stone walls which prevent the participation of working women.You figure Gerard Kennedy has been reading through the Pravda achives in preparation for his campaign? Bullying is wrong unless you are elected by the majority for that purpose. 18 years of indoctrination should set the proletariat straight:
Liberal leadership hopeful Gerard Kennedy is proposing an ambitious plan to erase the wage gap between men and women.Taking into consideration Comrade Kennedy's modest goals, his $7 billion five year plan is quite reasonable to encourage the weaker majority with stale and limp carrots.
Stirring the dust over at The Broom.
