The Position of Negro Women

This pamphlet outlines the exploitation of Black women by capitalism and urges them to unify with the Communist Party to fight oppression. “She suffers both from the general discriminations against women workers and from her identity as a member of a nationality singled out by the ruling class for special plundering, persecution and oppression.” 

Written by Eugene Gordon and Cyril Briggs
