La Escalera Karakola is a women's occupied house in a multiethnic working class neighborhood in the center of Madrid. For six years, la Karakola has served as a convergeance point and a point of departure for feminist thought and political action both in the neighborhood and in the far-flung feminist networks in which we participate. An open and changing collective of women -- mostly young, some not so young, of various sexualities, nationalities, class and educational backgrounds -- maintain the house as a public space for women, and from this space we generate projects which extend beyond the house itself.
