Book review: Sheila Rowbotham, Lynne Segal and Hilary Wainwright. 2013. Beyond the fragments: feminism and the making of socialism (3rd edition). London: Merlin. (324 pp)
Cox, Laurence
Beyond the fragments is one of those books that many activists cite as playing a role in their own biographies. I came across it in the mid-1990s, as a young organiser developing conversations and networks between different social movements in Ireland, in the overlap between European Green parties’ vanishing self-understanding as movement alliances and the first inklings of the Zapatista-inspired networking processes that would shortly lead to the “movement of movements”. We take our ideas and inspiration where we can find them, but read them critically, for what they can offer our own struggles and our own problems.
