Our Spring 2014 issue focuses on Gender Issues. How do gender roles, gender relationships, and gender identity play out in intentional community? Our articles delve far beyond the confines of stereotypical male/female issues to explore what gender means to each of us. Authors discuss their experiences with gender-bending, genderqueerness, and expanding gender consciousness. They weigh the pros and cons of “corrective discrimination,” and some suggest it’s finally time to move beyond “women-only space.” We also hear about ground-breaking approaches to housing the homeless and how Margaret Thatcher helped the cause. Please join the discussion!

Communities Magazine

Since 1972, Communities has been the primary resource for information, issues, and ideas about intentional communities in North America – from urban co-ops to cohousing groups to ecovillages to rural communes. Communities now also focuses on creating and enhancing community in the workplace, in nonprofit or activist organizations, and in neighborhoods, with enhanced coverage of international communities as well. We explore the joys and challenges of cooperation in its many dimensions.
