Conference Paper
Founded in 1936, Mujeres Libres was the first autonomous feminist organization in Spain. It responded to the lack of attention to women’s issues in the anarchist movement, thus simultaneously supporting and refuting the movement. This dual role was achieved through identity formation. This essay analyzes the decision to tie gender identity to the qualifications for participation and membership and examines the rhetorical tactics and their effects on the broader goals of the organization. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
