"Capitalist society depends on class exploitation. It does not though depend on sexism and could in theory accommodate to a large extent a similar treatment of women and men. This is obvious if we look at what the fight for women’s liberation has achieved in many societies around the world over the last, say, 100 years, where there has been radical improvements in the situation of women and the underlying assumptions of what roles are natural and right for women. Capitalism, in the mean time, has adapted to women’s changing role and status in society. "

It is quite common these days to hear criticisms of “mainstream” or “middle-class” feminism from anarchists or others on the revolutionary, and even the not-so-revolutionary, left. In particular, anarchists are often quick to criticise any feminist analysis that lacks a class analysis. This article argues that feminism in its own right is worth fighting for and that when it comes to ending sexism an insistence on always emphasising class can end up merely distracting from the fact that as anarchists we need to be unambiguous when it comes to supporting feminism. Rather than distancing ourselves from other feminists or seeking always to qualify our support, our emphasis should shift to developing and promoting our own brand of anarchist feminism.

El siguiente es un artículo sobre la situación de la mujer indígena en Colombia, según lo expresado por ellas mismas en el Foro "Mujeres Indígenas y sus Voces de Resistencia" en Bogotá, Colombia, el 27 de Septiembre del corriente año. El Foro puso en evidencia la situación de estas mujeres que sufren incesantemente de los golpes de la violencia del conflicto, así como de la discriminación y del racismo que saturan a toda la sociedad colombiana. Pero también, puso en evidencia su fuerza y su voluntad de lograr cambios mediante su propia lucha, movilización y organización. Ellas saben que son ellas mismas quienes han de conquistar sus derechos y saben que estos no les van a caer solos del cielo.

Por último, la situación de la mujer indígena es una especie de encrucijada que nos permite asomarnos un poco a la situación de las mujeres en general y del indio en general en Colombia.

How different are men and women? Very, according to some. John Gray’s book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” is based on the idea that there are fundamental differences between the genders. It may be just another self-help book on relationships, but it has also sold over 30 million copies and been translated into 40 languages.

A key starting point for any group, movement or society who want to mobilise the full potential and creativity of humanity is to challenge the gendered nature of roles. This begins when we challenge the idea that the differences between the genders are based on biology, rather than experience.

Women are under-represented in anarchist groups throughout the world, and this means our movements are considerably weaker as we are losing the point of view, the experiences, the skills and understandings of a large portion of humanity.

In a less obvious way, many men in the anarchist movement were and are, gender blind. That is they do not realise that their own way of seeing the world is coloured by their own gender and aren’t aware of or interested in understanding other perspectives. While we all naturally make sense of the world from the point of view of our own experiences, we also need to be able to realise that our experiences aren’t universal.

“El derecho al voto y la igualdad de derechos civiles son reivindicaciones justas, pero la verdadera emancipación no comienza ni en las urnas ni en los tribunales, sino en el alma de la mujer” Emma Goldman, mujer anarquista.
A las mujeres que no se cansan de soñar y luchar, a las mujeres que labran la tierra y levantan una estera en los arenales alejados de la ciudad, a las mujeres que golpean a quines las golpean, a las mujeres que cogen las herramientas de trabajo para sobrevivir, a las costureras, enfermeras, cortesanas, prostitutas, lavanderas, zapateras y ceramistas, parteras, obreras, a las mujeres libres, socialistas y libertarias, y demás mujeres que son también parte de nuestra orgullosa lucha social, a todas ellas, ¡hasta la victoria final compañeras!

The Republic of Ireland has one of the most draconian abortion laws in the world. At present abortion may only be performed where continuation of pregnancy poses a 'real and substantial' risk to a pregnant woman's life - about 5 cases per year of 50,000 pregnancies

The ban on abortion and continued attempts to make all access virtually impossible, approximately 7000 Irish women every year exercise their right to choose abortion and travel to England to access legal abortion there, largely through charities providing abortion services and private clinics.
