Radical Women Terrorizes Conservatives All Over the World: Who Benefits?
USA – March 25, 2019
We continue our series on organizations that divide American society and attack conservative values all over the world, and today’s chapter is devoted to the Radical Women group, which is considered to be one of the most notorious left-wing groups of its kind.
Radical Women isn’t new: It emerged at the end of the 1960’s on the wave of sexual revolution, when perversion basically replaced traditionalist values in the American society. They understood that the most effective way to spoil American youth at that time was to radicalize it towards the Left, and Radical Women took up this cause. And as perversion under the mask of sexual liberation was spread mostly through university and college campuses at that time, that is where Radical Women appeared.
Radical Women emerged in Seattle, Washington from a Free University class on Women and Society conducted by Gloria Martin, a lifelong communist and civil rights champion. As a result of the class, Martin teamed up with Clara Fraser and Melba Windoffer (initiators of the Freedom Socialist Party) and Susan Stern (a prominent figure in the local Students for a Democratic Society) to launch Radical Women in 1967. The group was highly politicized from the first years of its creation and soon became a significant player in the state, attacking the conservative agenda and averting young women from following the traditional way of life.
In the book titled Socialist Feminism: The First Decade, 1966-76 Martin writes that the new group was formed to "demonstrate that women could act politically, learn and teach theory, administer an organization, develop indigenous leadership, and focus movement and community attention on the sorely neglected matter of women's rights—and that women could do this on their own.” Analyzing this statement, we see that this group was discriminatory against men from the day it was created, as Martin shows them excluded from political participation altogether.
Interestingly, Martin wrote about not only socialist feminism, but also LGBT activism, demonstrating that “women activism” and “sexual minority activism” have always been part of the same kind of business:
Martin documents early lesbian and gay coalitions, the fight to legalize abortion in Washington State, radical labor organizing, community mobilizations against police brutality and poverty, campus upsurges, and the growth of the FSP's sister organization, Radical Women. She scathingly critiques the role of the Socialist Workers Party and other Left groups typified by sexism and opportunism. To them, she contrasts the Freedom Socialist Party's multi-issue focus on reaching those most oppressed as working class people of color, women, and sexual minorities. From the on-the-ground perspective of a seasoned organizer, Martin probes with a sharp scalpel the internal conflicts in the movements for social change.
Thus, no matter how different all these “radicalized” left-wing groups look, they all have a common enemy -- conservatives, which they actually don’t even try to hide it... The FAQ section of their website reads:
-What types of political participation do you engage in?
Over the decades, Radical Women has been involved in more coalitions and community campaigns than could possibly be listed, including work in the feminist, people of color, queer, reproductive justice, anti-Nazi, and anti-war movements. In all arenas, we have promoted principled united front organizing -- an approach in which people with political differences can join together to fight for a common cause, with a working class program and democratic processes.
However radical feminists are not that inclusive, friendly and pacifist as they might seem at first glance. They are quite brutal at times. For example, in October, a group of radical feminists influenced by the ideas of Radical Women attacked a church and a town hall in Chubut, Argentina. During the attack they sprayed abusive paintings and later firebombed it, causing a true disaster. The only measure that stopped the angry feminists from setting the whole town on fire was two gas stations not selling gasoline to young women who were suspected of collecting it for their Molotov cocktails.
A similar case happened in Uruguay when radical feminists attacked the church of Nuestra Señora del Carmen in the capital of the country, Montevideo on March 8 of this year. The situation there was quite tense, as the riot police protected the church’s entrance as hundreds of feminists hurled paint bombs and shouted epithets against Christians. A statement from the Archdiocese of Montevideo said, “We are profoundly saddened that, for the third year, the International Women’s Day march was fouled by a small group that threw paint bombs against the exterior of the church.”
From this point of view, the Radical Women manifesto appears to be quite hypocritical:
We oppose the destruction spread by U.S. imperialism and reject the idea that women and children should pay for the war machine which bankrupts social services and education programs in the U.S. while devastating other countries.
Fighting against American imperialism is a great thing, but the actions of the Radical Women group surely don’t contribute to it very much. Quite the contrary, the groups inspired by them bring devastation to the societies they act in. “The war machine” launched by radical feminists sets churches aflame, and this is no better than the “conventional” Washington war machine that bombs countries that don’t follow the U.S.’s agenda.
Thus, the main beneficiary of Radical Women’s activities is the Deep State of the American kind itself: The radical feminists don’t fight against it, but rather contribute to the chaos it brings to societies all over the world. And the values of “freedom” and “equality” are only masks for it.
