“It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
― Assata Shakur
About Breaking the Chains
We, the women of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, are fed up. We are ready to fightback and build a movement. We are ready to struggle for a better system. We have been in the streets marching, shutting down meetings, and standing up for our neighborhoods. Now it’s our time to connect more and more women together who are just like us and build a strong platform.
We are dedicated to organizing and mobilizing the movement for women’s liberation, and ultimately for socialism. In 2016, the Party for Socialism and Liberation began producing the magazine. Breaking the Chains is a one-of-its-kind feminist, socialist magazine, deeply connected to the everyday experiences of working women from generations past to today. The magazine intervenes in the political landscape at a time when we desperately need a new militant women’s movement. The creators, who edit, write, design, draw and produce the magazine, are women workers and activists in our communities. We believe that capitalism is the basis for the oppression of women and socialism is a necessary step to overturn that oppression.
