(en) Ireland, RAG magazine, by anarcha-feminist women in Dublin

Date Sun, 15 Oct 2006 14:46:27 +0200

The RAG is a magazine produced by a diverse group of anarcha-feminist
women in Dublin. We are all feminists, united in our recognition that
women's subordination exists. Our struggle needs to be fought alongside
the struggle against other forms of oppression, not treated as an
afterthought or as a distraction. We are all anarchists, united in our
belief for the need to create alternatives to this capitalistic,
patriarchal society wherein all are dominated and exploited.
Although anarchism is, in theory, inherently feminist, the reality is
often quite different. RAG was created out of a need to bring
feminist issues into mainstream anarchist sphere. We hope the
magazine will contribute to a change in anarchists' organising, on all
levels. We desire a fully participatory role for women in anarchism.

This first issue of the magazine has taken over a year to produce,
and has been an important and fulfilling process. We have taken
time to get to know one another, to become comfortable talking in
groups and to discuss and develop our ideas. While some women in
RAG have been long-time political organisers, others have
approached the group from a range of diverse backgrounds.

We have remained committed to non-hierarchical structures within
the collective, with revolving facilitators, skill sharing, group editing,
mutual support and respect, and, whenever possible, consensus
decision making.

As time goes by members come and go but the spirit of the collective
remains constant and, we hope, welcoming, involving and
empowering. Over the past year and a half we have held discussions
on a variety of topics from motherhood to the sex industry, watched
feminist films, had a pro-choice stickering campaign, organised an
anarchist assembly and workshops, swapped and shared books and
zines, built friendships and supported one another.

We hope that this magazine will provide food for thought and
provoke discussion. We hope that readers will be inspired to set up
their own feminist collectives, organise workshops, start and
continue writing, and otherwise bring the anarcha-feminist gospel to
the streets where they live. Please contact us with your feedback and
ideas to tell us what you think about the magazine, and what you
would like to see addressed in future issues. If you are a woman*
living in our area interested in writing or organising for the
revolution, please come get involved.

This is just the beginning!

Love and Solidarity,
