A problematic account of violence against women and macho behaviour in the squatting movement of West Berlin in the early 1980s.

Against Imperialism, Patriarchy, Sexism: Let's Fight For Our Liberation!!!

Article from London Notes #1 1992

We translate and publish here an article/leaflet recently circulated in the European Counter Network. It deals with women's position within the capitalist relation of work as (re)producers of the most important commodity, that is labour power. It deals with the recent strategies outlined by international agencies and private corporations to control and plan the quality and the quantity of this commodity, through the control of women's bodies and their sexuality. It appeals for the circulation of political analysis on this subject and of struggles against these strategies.
