Half The World

Serving as both a theoretical reader and a documentary history, Half the World seeks to repopularize the work of Communist women whose innovative work has been overlooked for far too long. The collection ranges from the early work of women like Margaret Cowl, Anna Damon, and Grace Campbell, to later leaders like Charlene Mitchell, Clara Colón, and Elisabeth Armstrong. Bennett Shoop’s Half the World tells a story of radical women whose determination built and led a century of working-class struggles. Foreword by Denise Lynn, author of Claudia Jones: Visions of a Socialist America.

Description

Half the World: A Century of Communist Women’s Writing compiles for the first time over one hundred years of writing from Communist women in and around the U.S. Communist Party (CPUSA). Included are classics such as Claudia Jones’ “An End to the Neglect…” and Louise Thompson Patterson’s “Toward a Brighter Dawn,” along with pieces that have yet to be widely republished, such as Mary Inman’s controversial “In Woman’s Defense” and essays from Angela Davis’ vice-presidential campaign.
