This month we will be reading texts on anarcha-feminism ranging from some oldies with Goldman and de Cleyre to more modern texts analysing with hooks, Lorde and Dirik. As part of the reading we’ve suggested a few questions which we’ll cover in the discussion:

What is the difference between anarcha-feminism, radical feminism and liberal feminism?

To what extend are the issues discussed by Goldman still relevant today?

How can anarchist practice be more feminist (should it be)?

Although we’ve picked quite a few texts this month they’re short we promise!

Look forward to seeing you all 7pm 20th November at Freedom Bookshop.
