01aUntying the knot – feminism, anarchism & organisation by Jo Freeman and Cathy Levine.

Published by Dark Star/Rebel Press

English – 24 pages.

Originally published in 1970 in various forms.

Jo Freeman’s classic organising polemic The Tyranny of Structurelessness is printed here in whole, and followed up by Cathy Levine’s response The Tyranny Of Tyranny, forming a call and answer for the dangers of too little structure in organising and the the reasons those structureless organisations were made in the first place. A great pairing of essays compiled in this handbook from 1984.
