Statement on May Day 2010
This May Day, 2010, the Women's Commission of the Socialist Party USA
joins our socialist feminist comrades worldwide to honor the work women
do both to maintain our families, workplaces, and communities and to
fundamentally change the system that so persistently and callously
disregards and undermines these efforts.
This year, we celebrate, in particular, the actions of public sector
workers, domestic workers, and other sections of the working
class who are fed-up with layoffs, cutbacks, and bad pay and working
conditions and are fighting back by demanding economic justice and the
right of all to high-quality education, jobs, health care, housing,
mass transit, and social services in a safe, healthy, and sustainable
As socialist feminists, we look forward to increased cooperation and
coordination among public and private sector workers, within and across
national borders. We know that only solidarity and organization
at the international as well as at the local level will enable us to
create a broad-based global democratic socialist movement for women's
and workers' rights.
Happy May Day!
Together we will make capitalism and patriarchy history!
we experience today is an outgrowth of the twin evils of patriarchy and
capitalism. This situation can only be overcome through the
actions, and solidarity of women and men combined with the
consciousness, ideology, and programs necessary to build an
international mass movement for fundamental social change.
