The special bumper Christmas Eve Women's Morning Star edition was jam-packed full of superb articles - focusing on women and the continued struggle for equal pay, equal rights, and an end to discrimination and poor attitudes that can be found even in our progressive organisations. Below are a number of these articles which are free to read here online. Every daily edition of our class's paper is worthwhile, but these special editions help our movement to focus on specific areas of struggle, and enable us to be better informed about the various strands of activism that are encapsulated in our movement.
