Anarcho-Feminism

Discipline: Political Science

Anarchism extended to take account of the oppression of women.

Of all forms of coercion and authority, that based on sex is the most fundamental and the most oppressive. The liberation of women requires the ending of all forms of oppression, but must strike at the root of male oppression or patriarchy, which is both a form of exploitation in its own right, and one which pervades most other coercive and authority relationships.
