James Connolly described working class women as “the slaves of the slaves.” Rosa Luxemburg described the wives of the capitalist class as “the parasites of the parasites.” John Lennon said that "women were the nig**rs of the world."
Capitalism is a society of inequalities, in how both wealth and power are distributed. These inequalities have often affected women more adversely than men, and campaigns for women’s rights have been ongoing for over a century. The Socialist Party argues that sexism and misogyny are expressions of how capitalism is inherently divisive and unequal. So, the solution is to address these problems at their source, by uniting to replace capitalism with a society based on equality and freedom. The real solution to women’s oppression lies within a framework of a completely different economic system, one not based on property and the pursuit of profit.
