Historic Overview

The FSP -- formed in 1966 by a splinter group of dissident Trotskyists who broke away from the Socialist Workers Party -- describe themselves as "revolutionary feminist internationalists ... in the living tradition of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky." That's they reason they also refer to their entity as "Radical Women." They use the typical heavy-handed rhetoric found on most ultra-left party sites (example: "the masses will sweep every obstacle out of their path and ascend to the socialist future"). The FSP has party organizations in the US, Canada and Australia. In 1998, the FSP fielded a handful of local candidates in Washington, California and New York. The FSP never fielded a Presidential candidate until 2012, when their nominee Stephen Durham ran as a write-in candidate in several states.
