A new title from Kersplebedeb which some people on this list may find of 

People's War... Women's War? two texts by Comrade Parvati of the 
Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) with commentary by Butch Lee. A look 
at women's role in the Nepalese Revolution, and the relationship of 
women to Maoism and revolution in general. The two main texts in this 
pamphlet are reprints of essays by Comrade Parvati, one of the few women 
in the central committee of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). In 
her interview with /People's March/, and her essay /The Question of 
Women's Leadership in People's War in Nepal/, Parvati is refreshingly 
critical and honest in her appraisal of the role of women in the 
CPN(M)'s peasant guerilla army, drawing conclusions regarding the 
connections between patriarchy and the defeat and degeneration of past 
communist revolutions, and the centrality of women to any successful 
communist revolution. Commenting on these texts, North American Amazon 
theorist Butch Lee examines the mixed record of Marxism-Leninism and 
Maoism in regards to women's liberation, the role of women in armed 
struggle, and the role of armed struggle in winning and defending 
freedom and autonomy for women and children.
