Transcript 10 AN OPEN LETTER OF TEXAS: TO THE SISTERS At our Austin conference September 27, 1970, we did not emphasize that the Woman's Liberation Movement was apolitical. Therefore, this letter is written to state categorically that the whole Movement is neither interested in the political philosophies of any of the sisters, nor is the Movement a vehicle to further the cause of any political movement, whether socialistic, communistic, fascistic, or capitalistic. At two of the abortion conferences in Austin, there have been attempts by some of the sisters to argue the relative merits of socialism in reference to the Woman's Liberation Movement. Other sisters have disagreed with this political philosophy and have preferred to be more involved with women's problems as a whole, as opposed to political problems. We feel that there is nothing sisterly about forcing one's political beliefs on a sister who may not know or care about a political faction, but is aware of and sincerely concerned with women's problems. We also feel that although capitalism has exploited women, it does not necessarily follow that socialism, communism, or fascism will not also exploit women. Robin Morgan in her article, "Goodbye To All That," reminds us that "Racism and sexism predate socialism." This letter is not meant to alienate any of our sisters of any political persuasion, but to remind them that we are all concerned with Woman's Liberation, not political movements. Will you sisters in women's groups in other parts of the state let us know your feelings of this? Write to either of the following: Ellen Johnson 3717 Lafayette PI.
