MACC AnFem meets once a month as a discussion group to create space for individual and collective self-examination and reanimation in the face of the alienation of capitalist patriarchy. Each meeting we come together and and give reportbacks from our various sub-groups (i.e. MACC Queer AnFem Reading Group, Mutual Aid, Newsletter, Conflict Revolution, Direct Actions) followed by breakouts that focus on specific projects each working group is doing. Some meetings may include a consciousness raising exercise that centers around a specific topic. MACC AnFem holds monthly public meetins at Blue Stockings, join us!

MACC Anarchist Feminist Caucus (AnFem) 

Story[edit | edit source]

The Anarchist Feminist Caucus (a.k.a. "AnFem") has operated within the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council (MACC) since 2017. MACC seeks to strengthen and support New York City’s anarchist movement through the coordination of existing and emerging projects. AnFem critiques and confronts gendered and sexual violence, capitalism and patriarchy while aiming to dismantle the overlapping systems and institutions that keep oppression in place. We join a long tradition of anarchist feminist collectives that operate in smaller scale affinity groups to build trust within a community that feels safe. We welcome all women, trans, and genderqueer folks to join us and learn more about ongoing work and campaigns, and/or to start new projects. For more information on MACC, visit macc.nyc.
