PRINCIPLES OF UNITY
A revolution within a revolution
WHO WE ARE / WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are not feminists. We are African Internationalists and follow the aims and objectives consistent with the theory of African Internationalism.
The African National Women’s Organization is an assemblage of African women who recognize our responsibility to organize with each other across borders, to address and overturn our special oppression.
This is part of the revolutionary political strategy created by the African People’s Socialist Party to bring African women into revolutionary political life.
We desire to see a liberated united socialist Africa where the workers have power and where women are leaders and shapers of society. This must be done through the process of making the African revolution.
We believe that through this work we will bring women into a collective process of solving, not just our immediate problems, but solve problems related to all African women and all African people.
We understand that capitalism began at African people’s expense and is contingent on the continued exploitation of Africa and African people.
We recognize that the crises that plague Africa and African people everywhere, stem from the maintenance of capitalism, which is parasitic.
We believe that an organized resistance against capitalism is necessary to destroy this exploitation which causes the special oppression of African women.
We exist to build the revolutionary capacity of African women, with a focus on the poor working class.
We are led by the political theory of African Internationalism, which explains the world and our future in it.
As the only anti-imperialist, anti-colonial revolutionary African women’s organization, ANWO is leading on the everyday issues that impact the lives of African women.
