An Anarchist's Story: Ethel Macdonald

This is really worth a watch. I wouldn't necessarily call myself an anarchist, but think the philosophy is quite compelling. There is some really interesting stuff about Barcelona's adoption of anarchism for a short period from '36 to '37 before they were crushed by Stalinist supported communist forces and Franco's army.

There's a section on the women's movement within the anarchist movement and how they set up schools, maternity hospitals etc. and moved towards equality far in advance of the rest of the Western world at that time.

Just wanted to share.
