A Room of One's Own is thrilled to welcome author and anarchist Cindy Barukh Milstein for a discussion on their book Constellations of Care: Anarcha-Feminism in Practice in conversation with local Autumn Miller. An event for anyone who cares about the state of the world and wants to learn more about organizing through community building!

This is an in person event at A Room of One's Own.

About the Book

What do we do when the state has abandoned us? From failing health systems to housing crises to cascading ecological collapse, it's increasingly evident that state-centered politics do not protect us from the violence of colonialism and capitalism, fascism and patriarchy. In fact, they actively work to harm us.

Anarchist feminism—or anarcha-feminism—shows us that the ways we tend to our social relations can build a new world inside the old one. We can take care of each other when nothing else will, supplying communal well-being and liberatory horizons.

Cindy Barukh Milstein is a diasporic queer Jewish anarchist and longtime organizer. They've been writing on anarchism for over two decades, and are the author of Anarchism and Its Aspirations and Try Anarchism for Life. They edited the anthologies Rebellious Mourning and Deciding for Ourselves, among others.

Autumn Miller (she/her pronouns) is a PhD student in Gender & Women’s Studies at UW-Madison. Coming from a long background in anarchistic organizing and radical political education, her current scholarship focuses on body liberation as inherently tied to anti-capitalist and anti-state aspirations. She approaches feminisms through an understanding of the inseparability of the state, capitalism, and cisheteropatriachy.
