    1. Among the many useful titles on women's liberation published by Pathfinder Press sits a gem of a pamphlet titled Women's Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle. It contains the full text of a speech given by Thomas Sankara, the revolutionary leader of the West African country Burkina Faso (formally Upper Volta) until his assassination in 1987Sankara gives his speech to thousands of Burkinabe women gathered to commemorate International Women's Day on March 8, 1987. His speech is bereft of th [...]


    2. A short but gripping read consisting of Two Speeches given by Sankara. The Longest one is a speech given to the Women's Union of Burkina-Faso consists of a dialectical materialist attack on the historical role of Patriarchy and the subjugation of women in society as well as the challenges facing the revolutionary struggle for women's emancipation in Burkina-Faso in the year 1987. The Shorter speech is a simpler declaration of the Burkinabean revolution's aims towards Women's liberation


    3. "Women hold up the other half of the sky."A brilliant speech by Sankara, outlining not only the importance of liberating women and the benefits of such actions to any society, but stressing the negative attitudes men hold in regards to women that are so terribly damaging. A short and enjoyable read.




    4. "For the revolution cannot triumph without the genuine emancipation of women". This book is FIRE!!! Sankara was on a roll! Talking about the oppressive system colonization and post colonization, what the revolution would and should like and how the revolution is intricately tied with women's emancipation and full participation in all spheres of the Burkina society, you just have to admire the maverick that Sankara was. I do hope that more societies will take note of all the things he mentioned i [...]


    5. Sankara is a personal hero, and I found this short transcript to be very useful and inspiring. Particularly insightful I think were the sections on dialectical materialism and the specific character of women's oppression.


    6. An exceptional revolutionary who was way ahead of his time and his message is more than relevant in our present day as we continue the struggle to truly liberate our people from shackles of imperialism, neo colonialism and the ever present pseudo liberators.


    7. Today, many of our women still seek the protective cover of a man as the safest way out from oppression."What will people say"  They marry without love or joy, just to serve some crude, dreary male who is far removed from real life and the struggles of tge people. No! We must say again to our sisters that marriage,  if it brings society nothing positive and does not bring them happiness, is not indispensable and should even be avoidedTo the contrary,  let's show them our many examples of bold [...]


    8. It is so refreshing to hear/read a man speak about women with such love, affirmation & authority the way Sankara does in these speeches. He not only challenges men to love and respect women but also challenges women to fight for themselves, emphasising that their emancipation is a vital component of the revolution. A wonderful set of speeches.


    9. The African history section of the Indigo bookstores of the Greater Toronto Area are small and usually very similar. This book was only $10, struck me as an odd shelf choice for them, and I want to know why I should be super interested to read a book about women's lib by a dude. So I bought it.


    10. The untimely assassination of Sankara (and of the Burkinabé Revolution) is surely one of the greatest tragedies of 20th century Africa. What a brilliant mind.


    11. Thomas Sankara had a very grasp of the fundamentals of social, economic and cultural revolution especially the inclusion of women in a NEW society.


    12. Les meilleurs partent toujours en premier.Le discours de Thomas Sankara est poignant et plein de vérité.Il nous faut des leaders comme ça, aujourd'hui en Afrique et partout dans le monde.
