Energetic, thoughtful, motivated feminist rebels seek same. Join a vibrant, international organization of dynamic women of all colors, ages, and sexual persuasions. We’re workers, mothers, students, retirees, immigrants, women with disabilities—all united by a common socialist feminist program that prioritizes fighting for the needs and leadership of the most oppressed.
Radical Women was founded in 1967 by two seasoned feminist revolutionaries, Clara Fraser and Gloria Martin, and by young radicals from the Students for a Democratic Society who were fed up with sexism. The new group’s mission: to provide a feminist voice in the labor, antiwar and civil rights movements and a radical voice in the women’s liberation movement. Today Radical Women is an autonomous organization affiliated by program and aims with the Freedom Socialist Party.

On August 24th, the Obama administration is planning to sell off an area the size of Virginia for offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. This fossil fuel auction is set to take place in the New Orleans Superdome, just an hours drive from Louisiana cities and towns that have just been ravaged by unprecedented floods. In this moment, we need to stand with Gulf communities who have been resisting the fossil fuel industry for decades.
