Autonomous Radical Feminists (ARF) developed out of Anti-Porn London (APL), which was set up in 2007 by members of the London Feminist Network.

While APL will concentrate on the sex industry, and the direct and indirect harm it does to women, ARF will take a more wide-ranging approach.

We wish to examine the connections between the capitalist society that reduces women and children to commodities to be exploited, and the capitalist society that reduces the environment to a commodity to be exploited.
