Clara Zetkin's arguments in support of women workers contain a logic which can be effectively employed today in defence of stronger affirmative action programmes, not only for women but for the racially and nationally oppressed as well? Her analysis of the relationship between the woman suffrage campaign and the struggles of working women is significant not only because of its important historical value but also with respect to the class nature of such contemporary women's struggles as the campaign for the equal rights amendment in the United States.
