How Realistic is it to Form a Women’s Party?

Glad to see that some people are looking for more structured solutions than infinite storytelling. In our opinion it would have to…

a) set itself up as independent of the democratic party; b) develop special efforts to make it attractive to working class and poor women; c) take a clear stand about capitalism and how it affects women.

The purpose of such a party would not necessarily be to run candidates, but to develop transition programs specifically for women as we as coordinate and generalize the particular struggles of women.

We think this is an interesting idea.
