Beyond the Fragments was a pioneering text of the socialist-feminist movement first published in 1979. In several essays, the authors, Hilary Wainwright, Lynne Seagal, and Sheila Rowbotham, argued that self-organisation, horizontalism, and prefigurative politics was the central lesson of the feminist movement.
Speaking to the experience of, and disenchantment with, economistic and authoritarian socialism, Beyond the Fragments wove together influences from the feminist movement with central arguments of the radical new left.
Recently republished in a revised and updated edition, drawing on the experience of recent movements such as Occupy, Beyond the Fragments remains a key text for those concerned to re-evaluate anticapitalist politics today.
We are delighted to be able to invite you to participate in a discussion at University of London Union at 6pm on the 2nd October. We would also be particularly grateful if you could let your networks know about this event.
