Martha Gimenez has written that the Manifesto paid little
attention to women and women's issues. I have just checked
the Red Feather Manifesto for Praxis Societies and have
found it lacking as well.

It does note that capitalism externalizes costs to women
and it does call for alliance with feminist movements but
the kind of analysis which Martha, rightly, makes is lacking.

I will repair that oversight in the next draft of the Manifesto
and ask Martha to help me with it.
