A plea for Marxists to embrace feminism by a three-time Vice-Presidential candidate of the Socialist Workers Party. The "Bustelo Incident" refers to a 1954 article in the SWP newspaper, The Militant, attacking the cosmetics industry and making fun of women who used cosmetics. In this pamphlet, the author (1917-1997) recounts the controversy that arose over the article, decries male chauvinism in the article and in the Marxist movement, and pleads for Marxists to have a feminist outlook.
