The Tyranny of Stuctureless

THE TYRANNY of STRUCTURELESSNESS by Jo Freeman aka Joreen The earliest version of this article was given as a talk at a conference called by the Southern Female Rights Union, held in Beulah, Mississippi in May 1970.

"While working in this kind of group is a very heady experience, it is also rare and very hard to replicate. There are almost inevitably four conditions found in such a group;

1) It is task oriented. ...
2) It is relatively small and homogeneous ...
3) There is a high degree of communication. ...
4) There is a low degree of skill specialization ...

While these conditions can occur serendipitously in small groups, this is not possible in large ones."
