Infiltration of the Women’s Movement: A Feminist Critique of the Young Socialists


This 1973 pamphlet by the Social Revolutionary Anarchist Federation (Edmonton) contains a feminist critique of the Young Socialists/League for Socialist Action (YS/LSA). Using the example of a conference organized by YS/LSA at the University of Toronto on women’s liberation, the pamphlet accuses YS/LSA of infiltrating the women’s movement, and using the conference for their own gains. The pamphlet discusses who the YS/LSA is, their political perspective and history of their involvement in the women’s movement. It emphasizes the importance of challenging the YS/LSA and building an independent revolutionary women’s movement.
