Chapter 6 from A People’s History of the United States.
It is possible, reading standard histories, to forget half the population of the country. The explorers were men, the landholders and merchants men, the political leaders men, the military figures men. The very invisibility of women, the overlooking of women, is a sign of their submerged status.

In past revolutions – for example, against slavery or feudalism – the revolutionaries defined their goals in terms of freedom, liberty, equality, democracy, and so on. At the same time, they often allied those goals to actively supporting the newly emerging capitalist system. Capitalism, many hoped and expected, would secure, in the words of the French Revolution, “liberty, equality and fraternity.” Marx’s work says “no, capitalism did not and cannot secure liberty, equality, fraternity or democracy; indeed capitalism’s social dominance is now the systemic obstacle to their achievement.” Marx’s critical analysis of capitalism as a system informs and invites the next necessary step in realizing the greatest social goals of modern history.

Marxism 2012: Revolution in the air hosted radical journalist, writer and film-maker John Pilger. Back for his fourth year, Pilger says about the Marxism conference:
“Marxism in Melbourne is now Australia’s premier festival of debate and free speech on issues that are either excluded from or suppressed by the mass media: issues such as the government’s agenda for Indigenous Australians, Palestine and propaganda in its many disguises.”

In 1963, a senior Australian government official, A.R. Taysom, deliberated on the wisdom of deploying women as trade representatives. “Such an appointee would not stay young and attractive forever [because] a spinster lady can, and very often does, turn into something of a battleaxe with the passing years [whereas] a man usually mellows.”
