Clara Fraser, 12th March 1923 – 24th February 1998
Clara Fraser was an outspoken, revolutionary U.S. socialist feminist organizer who spent her life fighting for women’s, labor and civil rights and against capitalist war, poverty and bigotry. Fraser believed that, “Feminism, the struggle for women’s equal rights, is always a powder keg of the class struggle.” And she saw that the leadership of women — especially women of color and lesbians — would drive the whole movement forward. And her legacy lives on in the organisations she helped found, the Freedom Socialist Party (www.socialism.com) and Radical Women (www.radicalwomen.org).
