Rad Fem Conference Scheduled for London in 2013

The Radical Feminists will be having a big meeting next Summer - on June 8 - 9, 2013, at the Irish Centre in Camden Square, London. Here is how they describe their plan:
"The aim of this conference is to re-build a radical feminist movement and support the re-emerging interest in radical feminism among women.We will:  
  • Raise awareness and increase understanding about radical feminism
  • Increase networks and connections between Radical feminists
  • Improve activist skills and knowledge among attendees
"We are committed to building a strong and vibrant women's liberation movement and a community of women of all ages and from diverse backgrounds. It is important that we meet as often as we can so that we can build solid relationships and plan for strategies to build a free and safe future for all of our sisters in the female class. We have hope that we can make positive changes for women through the development of a committed movement of women all over the world."  
Note their telling use of the phrase "the female class". These people would not likely style themselves as Marxists -- after all, Marx was just another patriarch, peddling a male ideology. Yet in common with nearly all feminists to the left of liberal, their mythology taps deeply into the Marxian intellectual substructure.

At any rate, we see that they are doing exactly what we non-feminists need to be doing. That is, raising awareness, increasing understanding, increasing networks and connections, improving activists skill and knowledge, and so on.  Well, the good news is that we ARE doing these things, quietly, behind the scenes, in unconventional ways. This activity is not visible to the casual web surfer who merely skims through blogs occasionally, but I can assure you that such activity is growing, and is international in its scope.
