Sexism and Socialism

Austrian female socialist leader, Adelheid Popp, one of 15 children, is a good example of the displaced child as she was one of fifteen children and began to work in the factories at six years old. She writes of her childhood in the factory in an autobiography and continues to work for women’s and family’s interests including marriage rights reform and income equality.(4) Both Popp and Zetkin are immensely important to uncovering the social inequalities of women with in the socialist doctrine and the hypocritical nature of a doctrine which supports power to the people and the individual, but not really to women!
