Political Education Study Group – Socialist Feminism

February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The discussion topic is Socialist Feminism. We will also have our first “local labor history” mini lead-off, which will be on the role of women in the 1929 textile strikes in Elizabethton.

Here are some short articles to introduce you to the concept of socialist feminism:
