Spartacist is included in all subscriptions to ICL sectional press in the English, French, German and Spanish languages.

Women and Revolution was the Journal of the Women's Commission of the Spartacist League/U.S. from 1971 through 1996. Now incorporated into Spartacist, Women and Revolution reflects our commitment to the fight for women's liberation through socialist revolution.
