Pre- 1990's Writings

Quiet Rumours: An Anarcha-Feminist anthology Introduction This is an introduction to what is arguably still the best book on anarcha-feminism (unfortunately, not saying a lot). The book is a reprinting of pamphlets produced by Black Bear in the late 70's/early 80's and has some new articles that may not be on the internet, but includes the following papers (*)...

*Anarcho-Feminism: Two Statements“As Anarcho-Feminists, we aspire to have the courage to question and challenge absolutely everything - including, when it proves necessary, our own assumptions.” (from Who we are: An Anarcho-Feminist Manifesto )“Why are many women sick and tired of 'movements'? Our answer is that the fault lies with the nature of movements, not with the individual women. Political movements, as we have known them, have separated our political activities from our personal dreams of liberation, until either we are made to abandon our dreams as impossible or we are forced to drop out of the movement because we hold steadfastly to our dreams. As true anarchists and as true feminists, we say dare to dream the impossible, and never settle for less than total translation of the impossible into reality.” (from “Blood of the Rose”) Two charmingly fire-breathing and idealistic statements, the second one insurrectionist.

*Lynne Farrow: Feminism As Anarchism Famous for the line “Feminism practices what Anarchism preaches,” Farrow gives a thumbnail of U.S. feminist history, critiques how most aspects of the Left have attempted to subsume feminist struggles, and encourages the feminist, anarchist practice of decentralized issue-specific problem-solving. Good on tactics, less strong on strategy.

*Peggy Kornegger: Anarchism: The Feminist Connection Radical Feminist Kornegger argues that feminists who are challenging all power dynamics have been anarchists all along and that making this inherent anarchism explicit prevents feminists from getting bogged down in reform.

*Voltairine deCleyre: An Introduction, and the Making of an Anarchist An autobiographical sketch of deCleyre’s childhood and adult practices, with some explanations re: some lines of anarchist thinking. Not as good as her “Anarchism” essay, I think.

*Carol Ehrlich: Socialism, Anarchism, and Feminism One of the best papers to date about feminism and anarchism (if somewhat sectarian). Discusses concrete questions (e.g. critiques of power dynamics, how these critiques can be used in bad faith) as well as theory (relates the Situationists to feminism, etc.).
