Free Love and the Labour Movement

6 oktober 2000 t/m 7 oktober 2000
Free Love

Second session in a series of workshops on Socialism and Sexuality.  This seminar explored the sexual ideologies and behaviours of anarchist feminists, individualist socialists, anarcho-syndicalists, and utopian socialists in Belgium, Holland, Great Britain, France, and Germany, and carefully delineated the ways in which these groups challenged the sexual reforms advocated by more traditional political groups, such as the Belgian Workers Party and the Dutch Social Democrats.
