“The Ozark Land Holding Association is an “intentional community” — a catchall term for a communal living arrangement that’s based on shared values and common interests.
Out of six known intentional communities created in Northwest Arkansas in the mid-1970s with the aim of empowering women, the 280-acre Ozark Land Holding Association is the only one that remains, and its membership has dwindled.
But Rivers and Suzanne Pharr, founder and former director of the Little Rock-based Arkansas Women’s Project, see the potential for a resurgence of such communities.
Pharr said having land set aside for women only is “one piece of self-determination and autonomy and full authority over our bodies and lives, without relying on men for our well-being.”
The Arkansas Women’s Project, a grass-roots organization founded in 1980, focused on such issues as fighting violence and rape and promoting minority rights.”
