Found inWork cat: Bottici, Chiara. Anarchafeminism, 2022: galley (anarchist feminism or, as we prefer to call it, "anarchafeminism"; "Anarchafeminism" is an expression that combines "anarchism" and "feminism". Similar expressions are "anarcho-feminism" or "anarchist feminism" or, more recently, "anarchistix-feministix"; There is, therefore, an urgent need for feminism, but the latter must be supported by an articulation of women's liberation that does not create further hierarchies, and this is precisely where anarchafeminism can intervene. While other feminists from the left have been tempted to explain the oppression of women on the basis of a single factor, or have imprisoned women's liberation into the framework of a narrow understanding of "womanhood," anarchists have always been clear in arguing that, in order to fight patriarchy, we have to fight the multifaceted ways in which multiple factors -- economic, cultural, racial, political, sexual, etc. -- converge to foster it. Including, we might say, the very factors that lead us to privilege certain notions of womanhood over others.)
