ECESF invites you to a talk by Silvia Federici in Berkeley

December 5, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

We as Early Care Educators do foundational work that shapes our youngest, influencing who they will become. What shaped the work that we do and how it is valued? Come hear Silvia Federici speak to how women’s reproductive activities—including child care and education have been remolded. Understand the relationship between the lack of respect current society has for early care and education, and the new surge of interpersonal and institutional violence against women. Federici offers a powerful reminder that reconstructing the memory of the past is crucial for the struggles of the present.


A fundraiser for ECESF and KPFA radio. Sliding scale, $5-25. Join us for conversation after the event.


Witches, Witch-Hunting and Women 

Hosted by Sasha Lilley


Silvia Federici is a feminist writer, teacher and militant. In 1972 she was co-founder of the International Feminist Collective that launched the Wages for Housework campaign  internationally. Her previous books include: Wages Against Housework, Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction and Feminist Struggle, and Re-enchanting the World: Feminism and the Politics of the Commons


“Silvia Federici’s new book offers a brilliant analysis and forceful denunciation of the violence directed toward women and their communities. Her focus moves between women criminalized as witches both at the dawn of capitalism and in contemporary globalization.”  —Massimo DeAngelis, Professor of Political Economy, University of East London
