New in September 2014: Anarchism and Feminism in the 1970s, plus new publication.

New Upload: Women activists discuss anarchism, feminism, and the relationship between the personal and the political, in extracts from interviews carried out in 1977. Part One of Anarchism and Feminism: voices from the seventies includes:

Notes towards an introduction

Susan:  I really believe in a basic anarchism in all women, because of their experiences.

Rose:  My politics have always come from what I experience, rather than theory.

Louise:  If you’re working towards a free society you have to think about everything.

Carol:  I thought that anarchism had more to offer.

Olive:  Revolution without fun was pointless.

Part Two will follow later this year, with four more interviews.

Just Published:  Women Against Fundamentalism: stories of dissent and solidarity, which includes my chapter ‘The Spirit of Resistance: Helen Lowe 1944-2011‘. I will be uploading the chapter to my website later this year, [added in November 2014] but strongly recommend the whole book, which is available in paperback and as an e-book.

Correction to download link: The Gender Politics of Anarchist History now has a functioning download link. I hope to get a more recent version of this paper online before long.

If you come across any other non-functioning links on the site, please let me know and I’ll get on the case.
