About The Event

Open House @ 6:30 at Revolution Books. Bring your songs, your poems, your stories, your rage, your joy, and your hope for a liberated future without degradation and subjugation of women. The theme on this night: “You cannot break all the chains, except one. You cannot say you want to be free of exploitation and oppression, except you want to keep the oppression of women by men… The oppression of women is completely bound up with the division of society into masters and slaves, exploiters and exploited, and the ending of all such conditions is impossible without the complete liberation of women. All this is why women have a tremendous role to play not only in making revolution but in making sure there is all-the-way revolution. The fury of women can and must be fully unleashed as a mighty force for proletarian revolution.” – BAsics 3:22, Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party Earlier that day at 12 noon we will be taking the revolution and Stop Patriarchy into One Billion Rising for Justice at Daley Plaza. Look for the banner “Unleash the Fury of Women as a Mighty Force for Revolution” and Stop Patriarchy’s bright red sign and “Abortion on Demand Without Apology” placards. Join us for the open house at 6:30 pm at Revolution Books 1103 N. Ashland Ave. 773-489-0930, [email protected]

About The Organization

Revolution Books Chicago

Revolution Books is a place where people meet the revolution.
Scientific and poetic, wrangling and visionary – Revolution Books is alive with a defiant spirit that refuses to accept that the horrors of today's world have to be.
People come to the store from all over to find the people and deep engagement about the possibility of a radically different way the world could be.

At the heart of Revolution Books is the cutting-edge work of Bob Avakian, whose new synthesis of communism envisions a radically new society that is overcoming all of the oppression of the current world while giving great scope to intellectual work, ferment, and dissent as integral to the complete emancipation of humanity.
Revolution Books has a collection of books on history and political theory, novels and poetry, atheism and science, world geopolitics and philosophy, as well as literature and books in Spanish. Check out the weekly discussions, author readings and film screenings.

“Our mission is to challenge the new generation in particular to reject this culture of rape and pornography, to resist the shaming of women who have sex and/or abortions, to wage fierce cultural and political resistance to wake others up, and to celebrate, fight for, and win the full equality and liberation of women.”
