Intersectionality: Implications for Anarcha-Feminism

Credited to Kimberle Crenshaw in the late 1980s, intersectionality is the current buzzword of the mainstream feminist movement. It quite rightly recognises that all oppressions – from sexism and racism to classism and ableism – are merely categorisations of human identities, ranked against each other through social constructs that serve only to create layers of oppressions within society. Anarchists have long recognised the need to fight oppressions on all fronts, yet we have been ineffective in linking our discourses with mainstream feminist dialogue.

Occupy Sydney

A global movement is growing. From Egypt to Spain, from Greece to the United States, hundreds of thousands of everyday people are occupying. Occupy Sydney began on 15 October, with hundreds of people reclaiming Martin Place. Flanked by the imposing towers of the financial and political elites, where a handful of people make decisions which affect the whole society, a new democratic space was established.

Don't forget your revolution

Last week (19 July) was the 75th anniversary of the Spanish Revolution. Between 1936 and 1939, more than eight million workers and peasants participated in a revolution that turned anarchist ideals into a reality in their factories, farms and schools.
