"In this booklet:
"A Marxist analysis of the role of women through history
Shows that in the primitive society — the matriarchy — men and women worked together as equals
Traces the roots of women’s oppression to the development of wealth in the form of private property, slavery, and class oppression
Answers the line that since men oppress women, all men are the enemy. Instead, it shows that only the ruling class capitalists profit from the oppression of women — the capitalist system is the real enemy
Supports the struggle for social and political rights for women as an essential part of the class struggle
Finally, the tremendous gains in the socialist societies point to the only road to full emancipation of women as well as all humanity — socialist revolution.”
