Anarcha-Feminism and the Newer “Woman Question”

Gone are the days when anarcha-feminists nurtured visions of
revolution brought on by a unity of women. While the following quote
can be found in a nineteen-seventies classic “Anarchism and the Feminist
Connection,” “The development of sisterhood is a unique threat, for it
is directed against the basic social and psychic model of hierarchy and
domination...”[1] it has become clear that sisterhood alone is not a
threat to hierarchy and domination. The logical conclusion of any type
of feminism should not be to simply seek equality between each woman to
her race/class male counterpart, leaving other inequalities in place.
More explicit in anarcha-feminism is that a focus on gender oppression
is not at the expense of attention to other systems of power. While some
of this is addressed by intersectionality, I am also interested in
further questioning this concept of sisterhood, or more specifically,
expanding what I will call the newer “woman question:” are we to
continue to orient around an identity called “woman,” or should we
instead oppose the power structures that have created this category to
oppress us?
