'An important resource for students of the bold and brilliant 1970s wages for housework movement' -- Kathi Weeks, author of The Problem with Work: Feminism, Marxism, Antiwork Politics and Postwork Imaginaries
'This is a precise reconstruction of a legendary and almost-forgotten feminist campaign in Europe and North America. It includes a broad and balanced analysis of the theoretical background of the claim for wages for housework as well as of the controversies around it. An exciting and well-written memory of the 1970s!' -- Gisela Bock, Professor at the Free University Berlin
