Abstract

In this interview the work of philosopher and activist Silvia Federici is discussed, Topics include: primitive accumulation and the exploitation of women; domestic work; the concept of reproduction; and resistance to global capitalism. Among many things, Federici argues that in order to effectively resist the continued exploitation of women and the devaluation of the activities by which our lives and labor-force are reproduced, we must create new forms of communalization that not only establish some distance between ourselves and the market/state nexus, but allow us to create the kinds of solidarity necessary for re-appropriating the resources that we reproduce.
