Silvia Federici is a feminist writer, teacher, and militant. In 1972 she cofounded the International Feminist Collective that launched the Wages for Housework campaign. Her books include Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women; Caliban and the Witch; Re-enchanting the World;and Revolution at Point Zero.
"Federici's attempt to draw together the work of feminists and
activists from different parts of the world and place them in
historical context is brave, thought-provoking, and timely.
Federici's writing is lucid and her fury palpable."
--Red Pepper "Real transformations occur when the social relations that make up everyday life change, when there is a revolution within and across the stratifications of the social body.... Silvia Federici offers the kind of revolutionary perspective that is capable of revealing the obstacles that stand in the way of such change."
--Feminist Review "Reading Federici empowers us to reconnect with what is at the core of human development, women's labor-intensive caregiving--a radical rethinking of how we live."
--Z Magazine "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 theoretical capacity to articulate the plurality that fuels the contemporary movement of women in struggle provides a true toolbox for building bridges between different features and different people."
--Massimo De Angelis, professor of political economy, University of East London
