    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 2016
    In this issue of Other Voices, we mark International Women's Day.

A key focus at that time was winning the vote for women, with the slogan "The vote for women will unite our strength in the struggle for socialism". The link between women's rights and socialism became even clearer a few years later, in 1917, when a Women's Day march in St. Petersburg turned into a revolutionary uprising which led to the overthrow of the Czar and the Russian Revolution.
