Feminism is the advocacy of equal human rights for women.
In 'A Cyborg Manifesto', Donna Haraway criticizes traditional notions of feminism, particularly its emphasis on identity, rather than affinity. She explores the potential of the cyborg concept in order to construct a postmodern feminism that moves beyond dualisms and the limitations of traditional gender, feminism, and politics.
The desire to change the world remains merely an abstract ideal or a political program unless it becomes the will to transform one’s own life. If joy and wonder, and a beautiful, indomitable existence are what we want, we need to try to achieve this here and now in rebellious defiance against all domination, eradicating the logic of submission from our lives, and our relationships and our revolutionary struggle - for the destruction of politics and the creation of life without measure.

Towards the Destruction of Patriarchy
Enemies unite experiences that generate the environment of terror that makes up daily life under Empire
To its credit, the women’s movements have raised the issue of women’s revolt in terms other than class-struggle ones, class struggle the only historical driving force seen by the Marxists, who have clarified the economic exploitation of women not paid for housework and child-rearing but have not challenged the reproduction of the power male workers wield compared to women workers. Capitalism has an ideological need of this form of social organisation.
Strategies for Self-Defense for Women and Girls
A South African Anarchist Pamphlet. Anarchists recognise that women are specially oppressed as a sex (they face oppression as women as well as due to their class position). We call this oppression sexism. As Anarchists, we oppose this oppression on principle and in practice.

Documents from Chicago's Clandestine Abortion Service 1968-1973. This collection may not only to be viewed in terms of abortion rights, or even strictly in terms of the quest for women to have control over their bodies, but also in terms of any group of people face-up against the onslaught of modern-day slavery (in all its forms) taking control over their lives. Jane is an inspiration— a beautiful example that battles can be won without begging. Today they can be seen as a bold display of an effective underground organization operating with utter disregard for the letter of the law— women taking their lives into their own hands and taking responsibility for their actions, all the while without asking for anyone’s permission.
Supporting survivors, what men can do, racism and rape, and notes specific to male survivors.
The Anarchist Feminist Philosophy of Autonomy and Freedom
We are not exempt from being the oppressors--oppression is ingrained in our development. It is, however, scary to see in yourself that which you hate in society. Know what sexual assault is! Realize the effects your actions have on people.

A feminist child-rearing zine for everyone
the rapist is not a deviant. Rape is the norm. Rape is not a crime of passion; it is quite possibly passion’s farthest opposite. Passion’s crime par excellence is murder; we murder for hate or for love. Murder is an act that violates the right to life that is promised by governments; its logical conclusion is pure murder, a violence without object. Rape has only its object. Rape’s logical concussion is pure distance. The rapist does not hate or love its object; the rapist only feels distance. At least perverts have their imagination to feel at home with. Rapists are alone even when they are with their thought. They are the saddest creatures to walk this earth.

Born into poverty and plagued by it her entire life, educated by nuns in a convent school, chronically ill, the survivor of a nearly successful assassination attempt, and dead at a tragically early age, Voltairine de Cleyre doesn't seem a likely candidate to become what Paul Avrich called 'a greater literary talent than any other American anarchist.' But de Cleyre was undeniably one of the most important anarchist thinkers in the US or any other country. Greatly admired by her contemporaries for her brilliant writing and tireless schedule of public speaking, her ability to approach the most complex issues with a mixture of common sense, passion, and clarity makes her works as relevant today as they were a century ago.
Armed Struggle Against the Institutions of Patriarchy
A movement whose time has come; a marxist view of when and why transgender oppression arose
Some anarcha-feminist notes. Much of this text focuses on power, as well as the connecte issue of various forms of constraint on human action, with a particular focus on women.
Feminism, Anarchism, and Organization. The unstructured group has an important role to play in building for change. But at times it can be dominated by informal structures and elites, and it is often prone to internal arguments and insularity. How far, then, should the leaderless principles be taken?
