The Russian Revolution represents the highest stage of liberation the working class has achieved. Some of the most oppressed sectors of society—women, Jews, and oppressed national minorities—played a key role in the revolution. There had been debates about national liberation, women’s oppression, and the Jewish question prior to the revolution. These issues all came to the fore in the democratic tumult of the revolution. It reinvigorated old debates and forced examination of old positions in light of new developments and struggles by the oppressed themselves. In following years, the Communist International attempted to develop an international communist movement committed to fighting national, racial, and other forms of oppression. This talk will go through some of the key debates and historical turning points, to examine the theoretical and practical contributions to the fight against oppression made in and by the Russian Revolution.
