Says Rosa …

The most revolutionary thing we can do is always proclaim loudly what is happening

 
Speaking of Rosa, early Xmas shoppers, methodically placing ticks against the names on their prezzie lists, might consider this gem from cartoonist and writer Kate Evans.

Reviewing it in late 2015, I wrote:

if we’re talking womanhood celebrated, here’s a rare treat for feminist and socialist alike. Red Rosa by Kate Evans is a work of flat out brilliance; a fuller story of a great life than I’d thought to see. Rosa’s mighty spirit and towering intellect – both much in evidence as she took on Lenin, no less, over the nationalist question – shine through every page, as do the ups and downs of a tempestuous love life integral to one whose eloquence on dialectics did not shy from those of individual and society, personal and public. The whole story is in beautiful, monochrome graphics.
