Women’s Liberation And The SDS

At the end of the speech at the twenty-third national conference of the Socialist German Students’ Federation the speaker says, “Comrades, if you are not ready for this discussion — which must be a substantive one— then we must draw the conclusion that the SDS is nothing more than an inflated mass of counter-revolutionary dough.” My question would be is this statement calling out the SDS and declaring some sort of opposition to them ? I feel like both of these groups should be able to get along and fight for the same thing. This might work even better having more people fight for the same thing. I read in the speech that the Liberation withdrew from SDS. Is this because they felt like their ideas were not being prioritized or that they felt that same oppression within the organization ?

  1. I do believe that this statement is calling out the SDS but it is not exactly declaring some sort of opposition to them. The Women’s Liberation is more so calling the SDS to action and that in order to be a successful movement they must draw their consequences from the work that the Women’s Liberation is doing. In much simpler terms, they must indeed work together to be successful. I do believe that the Liberation withdrew from the SDS given the fact that the SDS was not able to use the Liberation’s work, thus limiting their voices in these movements.
