Does it mean I'm an oldschool webcomic fogey that I remember when this was current?
Sincerely hard to swallow.
Happy International Working Women's Day!
Don't let the bourgeoisie fool you with their "clever" omission of the word 'working.' Today is a socialist holiday, honoring the struggles of working class women for well over 100 years. It was only adopted by the capitalist West in the '70s. They needed a bone to throw to the increasingly powerful feminist movements of that decade.
Women have always been central to the Revolutionary vanguard. Most notably, 101 years ago today on March 8th 1917. Russian women, enraged by the senselessness of bread rationing and world war, rallied the factory workers of St. Petersburg. They shut down the city. They faced down the army. They persisted through brutal attempts at repression. In eight days, they broke a dynasty that had ruled Russia for 300 years.
Fight on, comrades. https://soc.ialis.me/media/awQT-OsDNmBUjkspnu8
