catchy title, provocative, but only partially true at best. is the implication that feminism congratulates itself for acquiescing to an exterior dictum? or that it does anarchy better than anarchists, and therefore it’s superior to it, by beating it at its own game? if it’s the latter, wouldn’t that make them anarchists, even more so than those they refer to as anarchists?

in the body of the post it does say that it’s a panel and dissertation about revolutionary anarcha-feminism. so the implication is that not all anarchisms are feminist, but that those that are, are more anarchic by actually practicing what the other ones merely preach.

if there were an inverted title “anarchism practices what feminism preaches” the same could be questioned. perhaps this formula is inadequate to present a discourse that claims to be both anarchist and feminist. but the implicit conflict and jab and polarization between two groups pitted against each other makes it catchier.

anarchists are supposed to be against bossing and obeying, some would include preaching into that, but clearly many don’t. an anarchism that isn’t feminist in the best of ways the term could be read, isn’t worth much, but it isn’t true that feminisms have been or are inherently anarchic or even more so by default. it seems the panel discusses ways in which anarchists were found lacking in the feminist aspect of things.

anyways, great clickbait title
