An Anarchist’s Guide to Feminism

“I am beginning to realize that I’m exiled from my sex. A voluntary exile. Against the woman I should have been. The ‘real life’ I should have led.” Lola Lafon’s We Are the Birds of the Coming Storm, an insurrectionary and feminist take on Chicago’s 1886 Haymarket Affair, was published last year to critical acclaim. The author discusses the novel, feminism, labor movements, and her own political activism and work with underserved youth.
