Silvia Federici on How Capitalism Endures on Against the Grain

Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle, 2nd Edition

Against the Grain

Despite the precariousness that it creates, why does capitalism survive? Radical theorist Silvia Federici discusses how capitalism perpetuates itself by dispossessing and dividing us, while putting the job of reproducing the workforce squarely on the shoulders of the working class, especially women. She considers the missteps that the feminist movement made in confronting the rise of neoliberal capitalism and argues for an approach that leads to the reappropriation of power from below.
