Socialism, Women's Liberation, LGBTQ Liberation: China & Cuba +

March 16, 2018 at 6:30pm - 8pm

Women are fighting back as Donald Trump and the U.S. government heighten their assault on women, particularly immigrant women, working women, women of color, trans women, and women abroad through deportations, cuts to healthcare, the undermining of reproductive rights, and threats of total destruction to countries in the global south. What can we learn about the role of women in socialist countries and socialist revolutions to inform how we fight back here in the United States? 

Part 1: A presentation and discussion on the vital role that women played in the Chinese Revolution and analyzing the subsequent gains for gender-oppressed people. How does the status of women in China after the revolution in 1949 compare to that in the United States then and now in the workforce, the family, and in culture? 

Part 2: Presentation and discussion on the rights of LGBTQ+ people in Cuba before and after the revolution in 1959. Cuba’s healthcare system rivals any country even in the developed world. It has the second most doctors per capita than any country in the world and offers free gender-affirming surgery to trans people. How does Cuba remain proactive in this struggle against discrimination of queer and trans people? 

Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for the first event of our Women’s History Month series and to commemorate International Working Women’s Day!
