Autogestion, sometimes translated as "self-management," was a movement in 1970s France comprised of workers, trade unions, political parties, autonomous groups, and independent associations. Taking its first concrete form in factory and workplace occupations during the General Strike of May 1968, the movement soon became associated with a unique attempt at constructing 20th century socialism outside the confines of both Stalinism and social democracy. This study examines the movement's impact on and interaction with distinct spheres of French society and politics throughout the 1970s, including feminist, anti-colonial, immigrant, and urban movements.
