Video: Rape and Women's Rights
IBT supporter Adaire Hannah speaking at a rally on 13 March 2017 protesting against rape culture in Wellington, New Zealand. The rally was organized by students of Wellington East Girls’ College after comments involving rape “jokes” were made on social media by students from the nearby all-boys Wellington College. Her powerful speech clearly resonated strongly with the hundreds of youth in the crowd because it connected the issue of rape to other aspects of women's liberation. It is necessary to struggle against all injustice but socialist revolution is the only way that misogny, racism, xenophobia and other pathologies constantly reproduced by capitalism can be eliminated once and for all. These arguments are further expanded in Marxism, Feminism and Women's Liberation.
