Abstract / Summary
Clara Zetkin. “To the Socialist Women of all Countries!” in Clara Zetkin. Selected Speeches and Writing. Volume I from 1889-1917 (Berlin: Dietz Verlag, 1957). On June 19, 1917 Clara Zetkin published this call to Socialist women in the Leipziger Volkszeitung regarding her dismissal as editor of the German Socialist women’s publication Die Gleichheit by the German Social Democratic Party (Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands-SPD) after 27 years of service. During World War I, Zetkin came into conflict with majority leaders in the SPD who favored Burgfrieden, or the temporary cessation of opposition politics during times of war. Zetkin, among other left-wing Social Democrats, considered SPD approval of war credits a betrayal of International Socialist ideals. For Zetkin, Die Gleichheit existed only to serve the goals of International Socialism. Zetkin declared that Die Gleichheit was a source of spiritual leadership and connection between Socialist women in all countries. Without Zetkin, especially in her role as international secretary, she concluded, “The ‘old’ Gleichheit is dead. Long live International Socialism!”
