Anyone have any background info written in English on FAUD and SFB (Syndicalist Women's Group) member Trautchen Caspers? She is mentioned briefly towards the end of this short essay and appears to be a particularly notable Anarcho-syndicalist militant for her ideas about "Free Love" and her views about the male sexual entitlement that she had alleged to exist as a norm within the FAUD, but outside of this essay a Google search turns up nothing about her in English, and seemingly very little even in German for that matter.
