French anarchist Joseph Déjacque castigated Proudhon for his sexist economic and political views. He argued that "it is not the product of his or her labour that the worker has a right to, but to the satisfaction of his or her needs, whatever may be their nature".

Déjacque later named his anarchist publication 'The Libertarian: Journal of the Social Movement'. It was printed from 9 June 1858 to 4 February 1861.

In the mid-1890s, Sébastien Faure began publishing a new Le Libertaire while France's Third Republic enacted the "villainous laws" (lois scélérates), which banned anarchist publications in France.

Libertarianism has frequently been used as a synonym for anarchism since this time, especially in continental Europe.

A quote from the poem "Labels":

Far "Left" we place the Anarchists, Libertarians claim far "Right";

Yet both decry the government: False continuum brought to light.
