Feminism

I am working on a project for a gender class. I have to present information on several leftist feminist groups. I am having difficulty finding these organizations since most groups do not label themselves as leftist or radical. If you could please inform me of radical groups that I can research it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. I think that you are having a hard time finding groups that specifically label themselves "leftist feminist" because today most feminist groups are inherintly leftist--though the same can't be said for all leftist groups. A specific group that is more "leftist" is Radical Women, which has been around and active for almost 30 years. There is also historical groups such as Redstockings, WITCH (Women's International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell); The Feminists; and Cell 16. To learn more see the Feminist Memoir Project, by Ann Snitow, etc... Also, Shulamith Firestone's The Dialectics of Sex and Kate Millet's Sexual Politics. There are also a few entries in The Reader's Companion to U.S. Women's History edited by Mankiller, Mink, Navarro, Smith and Steinem.
