Why healthcare for all is a feminist issue

Rosa Campbell, another Feminist Fightback member, said, “We changed the banner because we do not uncritically celebrate Millicent Fawcett. Fawcett, like other suffragettes, was complicit in racism and imperialism. Fawcett was outraged that Maori women in New Zealand got the vote before British women. Ensuring everyone has access to the care they need, irrespective of immigration status, is a critical issue for feminists. We believe we must move forward with a feminism that challenges oppression and fights genuinely for justice for all.”
