Women, Family and the Russian Revolution – out soon!

As we celebrate International Working Women’s Day, Wellred Books is publishing a new book, ‘Women, Family and the Russian Revolution’ by John Peter Roberts and Fred Weston. Why publish a Marxist book on women and the Russian Revolution in the year 2023? The answer is that, more than 100 years after the Russian Revolution, we are still very far from achieving genuine equality between men and women. The women’s question has been transformed into one of identity, to be solved within the confines of capitalist society. We maintain that it remains a question closely linked to the class issues we face under capitalism.

Y, sin embargo, ÂĄahĂ­ estĂĄn! Galaxias masivas, maduras, insolentes, que brillan intensamente, ignorando por completo el hecho de que la teorĂ­a del Big Bang dice que no pueden existir.


Dopo un anno di guerra: dove va la Russia?
