The Fight Against Fascism in the U.S.A.
Lessons From the 1930’s – 40’s
8-week series, beginning January 28
Delve into gripping first-person accounts by anti-fascist organizers from the Great Depression era. The rise of fascism in Europe has been well-documented, but the home-grown Nazi movement it inspired is rarely discussed. This booklet is a compilation by participants who mounted successful campaigns to counter burgeoning fascist movements in New York, Minneapolis and Los Angeles, where they confronted organizations like the German-American Bund and the Silver Shirts, which emerged out of North Carolina, and demagogues like Father Coughlin, an ultra-right Catholic priest. Their stories contain valuable lessons for today’s anti-fascist activists in how we can unite unions, leftists and community organizations to effectively oppose racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny and red-baiting.

This unique book records the forging of the first Marxist feminist party in history — the Freedom Socialist Party. Set in the tumultuous upsurges of the 1960s and ’70s, the book is charged with audacity, verve and optimism. Author Gloria Martin vividly describes the eruption of the women’s liberation movement amidst the antiwar, civil rights, and queer struggles. She scathingly critiques the role of most of the Left, and probes with a sharp scalpel the internal conflicts in the movements for social change.
This is a story of years of intense work by radical women and men. It is a chronicle, a reference, an analysis, a judgement, and a guidebook. Its central message is inescapable: socialist feminism as a theme and strategy has never been more urgently needed than it is today.

A compelling account of pioneering electrical tradeswomen whose fight for affirmative action and against job harassment changed their workplace, their union, and their city. Radical Women is incredibly proud of the role played by our founder Clara Fraser and other members in an effort that began in the 1970s and continues today. The book shows how tradeswomen built alliances with men of color, white male union members and office staff to change the culture of management abuse and life-threatening sexism and racism at Seattle City Light.
“This amazing story gives hope and inspiration to women in every workplace.” — Louis Walter, Business Manager, IBEW Local #77
