Taking The Revolution Home: Work Among Women In The Communist Party Of Australia: 1920-1945
Joyce Stevens


Communist women who were active in political struggles of the inter war and war years reflect on the issues, the campaigns and the way in which their political commitment changed their lives. This is a history that allows contemporary activists to consider the ways they might learn from past struggles – both the defeats and the wins. The book includes interviews with women who were activists for women’s rights and workers’ rights in a time of great social and political repression.

Write a review.
‘At last … a book that tells the little-known story of women and women’s issues in the Communist Party during this period, an angle neglected in the standard histories of the Party. The frank discussion of matters such as contraception and abortion breathes fresh, feminist air into the history of Australian communists.’ Verity Burgmann
‘… a substantial contribution to a social history of the Communist Party.’ Daphne Gollan
