Item description for Quiet Rumours: An Anarcha-Feminist Reader by Dark Star Collective...
From consciousness-raising groups to hair-razing punk rockers, a fascinating window into the development of the women's movement, in the words of the women who moved it. Spanning the century, these classic essays contextualize feminism as a larger politics of liberation and equality. Whether it's Emma Goldman's attack on suffrage, the infamous Second Wave debates, or armed struggle group Rote Zora's call for direct action, critical analysis and biting polemic connect the dots to show not just how anarchism influenced feminism, but how feminism changed—and continues to change—the political landscape around it. Includes key essays "The Tyranny of Structurelessness" and "The Tyranny of Tyranny" which broke open the feminist debate on organizing in the 1970s.

the original riot grrrls Mar 24, 2006
I just love this angry, beautiful and thought-provoking collection of writings by radical women. I strongly recommend it for every feminist woman and man, struggling for a more egalitarian, democratic and just tomorrow. May these essays encourage you in your everyday battles against male domination, class oppression, white supremacy and the state...and most of all, may we win!!!
