Saturday 3/18: The Tyranny of Structurelessness

When: Saturday 3/18, 3:00 pm
Where: Lupulo Beer House (233 Cathcart St.)
What: Discussing “The Tyranny of Structurelessness” by Jo Freeman
 
This week at Lupulo we discuss Jo Freeman’s classic article on the challenges and principles of effective organization:
During the years in which the women’s liberation movement has been taking shape, a great emphasis has been placed on what are called leaderless, structureless groups as the main – if not sole – organizational form of the movement. The source of this idea was a natural reaction against the over-structured society in which most of us found ourselves, and the inevitable control this gave others over our lives, and the continual elitism of the Left and similar groups among those who were supposedly fighting this overstructuredness.
