Awareness of women's problems was not particularly strong in 19th century anarchism. Although Bakunin and Kropotkin wrote illuminating texts on the matter, the truth is that the irruption of a kind of libertarian feminism was carried out by the women themselves, without none of them appearing, however, at the anarchist canon, configured exclusively by men. that they were, in addition, and conspicuously, Western. Ideas were often imposed in the middle that, such as the one suggesting that the social revolution would solve women's problems at a stroke, did not seem singularly lucid. ---- In the back room, what is suspected is the intuition, accurate, that when a feminist takes things at their roots, the simplest thing is for them to spontaneously and fortunately place themselves in libertarian positions.

In that magma, full of chiaroscuro, a movement called Mujeres Libres was outlined in 1936 in Spain. If the initiative arose, of course, to face the aberrantly patriarchal condition of Spanish society at the time, in one of its main dimensions it also obeyed the purpose of responding to the unhappily consistent presence of sexist behaviors in the libertarian world itself . And that of profiling, in parallel, specifically female organizations.

The ascendancy of Mujeres Libres has been very powerful in determining what is now understood by anarcofeminism. I believe that the latter is, of the currents of libertarian thought, the one that has experienced the greatest growth and, perhaps, the one that attracts the most attention. Although its fundamentals remain essentially the same as those of 1936, to them is now added the need to answer many of the topics and concessions that accompany state feminism. This answer underscores the class dimension that must accompany the questioning of patriarchal society, while recalling that the bulk of actually existing feminism seems determined to integrate women fully, and in fictitious equality, in the world, hierarchical and exploitative. , outlined by men.

Anarcho-feminism is, of the currents of libertarian thought, the one that has experienced the greatest growth and, perhaps, the one that attracts the most attention.

So that nothing is lacking, in the plot of anarcofeminism there is an acute conscience in what happens to what happens with women in the countries of the South. It can hardly be a coincidence that the initiatives that have taken shape in Chiapas and Rojava have brought their condition and emancipation to the fore. In the back room, what is suspected is the intuition, accurate, that when a feminist takes things at their roots, the simplest thing is for them to spontaneously and fortunately place themselves in libertarian positions.
