The slogan “For the revolution to triumph in its totality there must be emancipation of women” is attributed here to a “James MacNeill (or MacNell) but it is also found in connection with the women’s league of the Zimbabwe African National Union – see the second image among these anti-imperialism placards.

The mural shows a female soldier whose open palms support outstretched arms holding a paintbrush, a hammer, and a book. (For the same idea in Derry, see The Destructive Talents Of The RUC.) Ballycolman estrate, Strabane.
