That's quite a first cover. How many women were in the organization at the time? And in the editorial group?

Sad to say this is a typical graphic from the time period. I was involved with the broader group of SRAF members engaged with this. There were actually a number of women involved. Been a long time so I can't remember the breakdown

Syndicalist, that would be great if you could dig some up!

Yeah, with the graphic nowadays I would say that was totally inappropriate, however from stuff I have seen from the 70s that sort of imagery seemed pretty common

Steven.... We'll see what we can do. It really was very eclectic and not the best publication. But it reflected the eclectic nature of mid 1970s anarchism. Def not class struggle That's why we went on to form the ACF/NA a few years later

I'll be in touch on this

Mimi did the graphic, and I always liked her drawings. The mag was certainly class struggle, although not of the rabid organizational variety that leftoids like. I did the process camera work at RPM print Coop in Madison for a few issues.

And this is why SRAF failed.
