Political EducationSecond half of Tyranny of Structurelessness by Jo Freeman
Join BuxMont DSA every other week (alternating Mondays and Wednesdays) at 7:00pm for our weekly virtual political education program! Each session will include a live reading of a relatively short, accessible article or other piece of media that encourages us to think strategically about the challenges socialists face in our struggle to build a better world. Because we read articles aloud together, interspersed with open discussion, no homework is necessary!
This classic essay by American feminist Jo Freeman is considered by many to be an essential text for organizers. It reflects on the many lessons learned through experiments with leaderless and structureless organizing within the feminist movement of the 1970s. In this session we will be discussing the second half, in which Freeman describes the ways that an organization can avoid the pitfalls of structureless organizing with democratic structures. Don’t worry if you can only make one session!
