To undermine for good the sexual divison of labour, women and men must begin with children
The Guardian, Tuesday 8 March 2011
A century ago International Women's Day was associated with peace, and women's and girls' sweated labour – which votes for women were to deal with. Not a celebration, but a mobilisation. And because it was born among factory workers, it had class, real class. Later it came to celebrate women's autonomy, but changed its class base and lost its edge. This centenary must mark a new beginning.
