Sub titel: Rural Women And Anarchist Collectivization In Civil War Spain
An essay exploring revolutionary activities in rural Spain during the years of the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), comparing two different (anarchist) perspectives on th nature of women's subordination and empowerment. One - evident in the activities of the mainstream anarcho-syndicalist movement - understood women's subordination to be rooted in her economic domination and, consequently, viewed economic participation as the route to empowerment. The second - developed in the anarchist women's organisation, Mujeres Libres - understood women's subordination to have broader cultural roots, and consequently, saw the need for a multi-faceted program of education and empowerment as key to women's liberation. The article examines the agricultural collectivisation sponsored by the CNT, as well as the activities of Mujeres Libres, comparing the successes and failures of each approach.
