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
