February 21st @ 6PM
38 Blood Alley Square, Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 0C4
The purpose of this event is to analyze anarcha-feminism as an alternative to mainstream liberal feminism, as well as a fundamental (though often discredited) aspect of anarchism. Ideally, by focusing on feminism as a point of struggle rather than an identity label (i.e., as an unending process rather than a series of rights-based campaigns), we can talk about what anarcha-feminist organizing might look like.
A feminism rooted in anarchism acknowledges that equality and capitalism can’t co-exist; that eliminating leaders takes precedence over striving for women leaders; and that co-operative, anti-authoritarian organizing is the means that should become the ends.
The reading below is suggested as a conversational starting point, but isn’t mandatory. If you want to just hang out, that’s fine too.
