Voltairine de Cleyre was a prolific American anarchist writer and feminist, opposing the state, marriage, and the domination of religion in sexuality and women’s lives. De Cleyre was initially drawn to individualist anarchism but evolved through mutualism to an “anarchism without adjectives.” She believed that any system was acceptable as long as it did not involve force. However, according to anarchist author Iain McKay, she embraced the ideals of stateless communism. She was a colleague of Emma Goldman, with whom she maintained a relationship of respectful disagreement on many issues. Many of her essays were published posthumously by Mother Earth.
