Hey, Anarchist Women!
Who makes history? Who records history?
What will our history look like if Fox News tells it?
What will our history look like if we tell it?

My name is Kate, from Phoenix, AZ. I'm a participating member
of the Phoenix anarchist community and have been involved in
various projects, from Copwatch to Indymedia to infoshops, for
the past 3 years. My friend Amy and I will be traveling up and
around the west-ish coast in the next two months. I am looking
to interview anarchist women (as self-defined, for both words)
for a book and multimedia history project. As there is not
exactly an overwhelming amount of *current* women's anarchist
or anarcha-feminist material available right now, I would like to
contribute some work to expand the movement's knowledge about what
women are thinking and doing. I would also like to meet and learn
from anarchist women.

Yeah, Emma and Volterine were great, but we need modern portraits
and more current coverage of our movement's she-roes. If you're a
hip mama, an environmentalist, a shy writer, a community organizer,
a fighting woman of color, a catholic worker, or a teenager with a
temper, I want to talk to you! Women are central and active
participants in anarchist communities, and yet the face of anarchism
is still distinctly male. This project is an effort to correct that
myth and reach out to women, radical and otherwise, to support and
encourage them in anarchist politics.

Our initial itinerary is as follows. Please write back ASAP if we
can talk or if you can put up Amy and I for a night in your town.

A little about myself, for those who are interested:
Currently, I'm involved in Phoenix Copwatch
(http://www.phoenixcopwatch.org)
as a member and trainer, am working on the Free Laro
(http://www.phoenixcopwatch.org/freelaro).
I'm a founder of the FOCUS movie night
(http://www.phxarts.org/focus)
and am working with the Local to Global Justice
(http://www.localtoglobaljustice.org/)
group for the 2004 conference. I was a member of
the Phoenix Anarchist Coalition
(http://www.phoenixanarchist.org)
for 3 years and did lots of organizing for the
Southwest Anarchist Network Conference, held in
April of 2003. I've been a semi-regular contributor
to Arizona Indymedia (https://www.arizona.indymedia.org)
and have helped out the folks from the The Autonomous
Media Center (http://www.autonomousmedia.net) and See
Sharp Press (http://www.seesharppress.com). You can
write any of these groups to do background checks and
please feel free to do so - trust is essential to this
project.

Hope to hear from ya'll soon,
~ Kate James
