Political EducationFirst half of Tyranny of Structurelessness by Jo Freeman
Join BuxMont DSA each week, 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 first half, in which Freeman describes the ways that a lack of formal structure creates problems for an organization and it’s members. We will discuss the second half next week but don’t worry if you can only make one session!
