Workers Of The World Unite

Workers Of The World United

Flora Tristan, French socialist writer, theorist, and activist, and one of the first modern feminists to link socialism and feminism.

Tristan was the first to argue for an International Union Of Workers, and coined the phrase workers of the world unite, which was later liberated from her by Karl Marx. As a feminist socialist, she believed that women would only achieve full citizenship with the end of wage slavery.
