"The Socialist Party is committed to ensuring full equality for women. American Socialists routinely fight to end gender discrimination in the areas of education, employment, health care, or any other sphere. American Socialists combat biases across economic, political, and social life that hold women back and limit their opportunities."
★ American Socialists
The Socialist Party and women share common values and priorities, including supporting our families, protecting our country, and advancing the issues that matter most to women of all ages and ethnicity.
This is true now; and it was true even before 1880, when the Socialist Party leader, Eugene V. Debs first met Susan B. Anthony at a Women's rally in Terra Haute, Indiana. For more than 140 years, American Socialists have been working tirelessly to advance progress for women across the country in every respect. Thatâ€™s why many American women dedicate themselves to Socialism.
The Socialist Party continues to fight to expand opportunity for women. By confronting violence against women, fighting for workplace equality, pushing for pro-family policies like paid family leave, and defending a womanâ€™s right to control her own body, American Socialists will make sure that women thrive in our country, because the Socialist Party understands that when women succeed, America succeeds.
