Issue #1910      April 6, 2020

This week ...

This week marks our last week of articles on Australian Communist Thought on women’s struggles. Here we look at our party’s position on promoting the right of married women to work, criticising the position married women cause unemployment as a “scapegoat.” We also look at how the party has promoted the role of women in leadership positions in the party.

In our history section, we are taking a look back at the Patrick’s dispute, where the MUA fought valiantly against the scrapping of jobs by the Patrick Corporation. This was a watershed moment in the union movement and one we should never forget as unions are still being attacked today with the government attempting to pass the Ensuring Integrity Bill. The second article looks at the inadequate conditions of hospitals and hospital works in New South Wales in 1957. The descriptions are eerily similar to the ones we face today and, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this article seems more relevant than ever.

Next article – MARRIED WOMEN HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO WORK
