Communist women and the foundation of the CPGB

Dora Montefiore and Helen Crawfurd

Theory & Struggle (2020), 121, (1), 26–31.

Abstract

Dora Montefiore and Helen Crawfurd were both foundation members of the Communist Party. They had a long history of activism for many years. Both had played an important part in the women’s suffrage movement and were, in addition, active socialists well before the foundation of the CPGB in 1920. They were socialist feminists, but their contribution prior to 1920 and their role subsequently as active communists has been largely ignored.
