Silvia Federici is a feminist writer, teacher, and militant. In 1972 she was co-founder of the International Feminist Collective that launched the campaign for Wages for Housework internationally. Her previous books include Caliban and the Witch and Revolution at Point Zero. She is a professor emerita at Hofstra University, where she was a social science professor.
"It is good to think with Silvia Federici, whose clarity of
analysis and passionate vision come through in essays that
chronicle enclosure and dispossession, witch-hunting and other
assaults against women, in the present, no less than the past. It
is even better to act armed with her insights."
--Eileen Boris, Hull Professor of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara
"Silvia Federici's new book offers a brilliant analysis and
forceful denunciation of the violence directed towards women and
their communities. Her focus moves between women criminalized as
witches both at the dawn of capitalism and in contemporary
globalization. Federici has updated the material from her
well-known book Caliban and the Witch and brings a
spotlight to the current resistance and alternatives being pursued
by women and their communities through struggle."
--Massimo De Angelis, professor of political economy, University of East London
