The Commune in Ethiopia Where Feminism is the Law How a village in Ethiopia has come to serve as a model for the rights of women, children and the elderly.

Originally published on Atlas Obscura, the artlcle reports on the history and egalitarian community life of Awra Amba, an over-400 people strong intentional community founded almost 50 years ago in the Ethopian Highlands according to egalitarian, feminist and puritan ideas. Four guiding principles underping the community's life: respect for women's rights, respect for children and the elderly and avoidance of unsocial behaviour.
