 August Bebel
Bebel was born in Cologne on the Rhine on February 22, 1840, in the poor family of a Prussian sergeant.
In the later sixties Bebel broke with the liberals, separated the socialist section of the workers' unions from the bourgeois-democratic section and, together with Liebknecht, took his place in the front ranks of the Eisenacher party, the party of Marxists that was to struggle for many long years against the Lassalleans, the other working-class party.
Bebel expressed the mood of the working-class masses and their firm conviction that a fight should be put up for full-blooded slogans, when he revolted with great vigour against this new opportunism.

In 1872, Bebel and Liebknecht, tried on charges of treason, were sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, but this only solidified Bebel’s control over the Social Democrats, and he was reelected to the Reichstag.
A moderate Marxist, he opposed either violent retaliation against repression or the gradualist, evolutionary socialism of Eduard Bernstein, condemning all deviation (right and left) at the Dresden Congress of 1903.
By 1912 the Social Democrats, embodied by Bebel, were the largest German political party.

 A Pioneering Male Socialist Feminist: The Recovery of August Bebel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Bebel is depicted as evolving from the 1860s to the 1890s, from relatively non-political self-help groups among working-class men to reaching out to women across classes, to male workers, and to socialist activists in particular.
Bebel's On the Present and Future Position of Women had emphasized that marriage was a private contract between two fully equal partners, to be dissolved without external constraints when the relationship between them made it necessary.
Bebel appears, no longer as an individual, but as part of a current, and the achievements as well as limitations of men's feminism can be understood from the book.

If in 1863 Bebel believed that the working classes were not ready for the vote, he was already changing his mind when he began his friendship with Wilhelm Liebknecht, who came to Leipzig from Berlin in 1865.
Bebel's position at the head of the party was now uncontested, and in the Reichstag he was the most prominent opponent of the government.
This is an accurate description of Bebel's aims; for him and for the leading body of social democratic thought he represented, political activity essentially consisted in promoting as effectively as possible the politico-social interests of the working classes.
