Sat 26th of March Disturbances-lecture: The Arrival of Feminism at the Anarchist Movement - the Anarcho-Feminist Union 'Peppi' And Other Feminist Groups in the Activist Movement of the 1990s

Doors open at 4 pm, Lecture begins at 4:15 pm

The anarchist movement in Finland in the 1990s was largely organized by men. The Finnish Anarchist Union, FAU (Suomen anarkistiliitto, SAL), Kapinatyöläinen-magazine ("Rebel Worker"), solidarity demonstrations and panel discussions were dominated by men, and mostly men's voices were heard at anarchist meetings. Red anarchism in Helsinki, especially, leaned heavily on the traditions of the workers' movement which did include lofty speeches about women's rights but whose gender roles were, in practice, quite traditional.
