In this incredibly dense chapter we take a deep dive into topics such as women's bodily autonomy, economic abuse, the weight placed on women by austerity, women as the reproducers of the workforce, the criminalisation of poverty and many, many more. Join us as we dive back into Silvia Federici's game-changing work 'Caliban and the Witch' with 'Chapter 2 - The Accumulation of Labor and the Degradation of Women.' This episode is part of our series on Marxist feminists. As Mao said,“Women hold up the other half of the sky.”Red Book Club recognizes that including the voices of nonmen in our studies is not a niche activity, but is in fact an essential step in gaining the most comprehensive view of the material conditions of the past and present as we possibly can; so we’ve planned this series to amplify the ideas that nonmen have been bringing to the conversation for centuries. From Federici’s analysis of women as a means of primitive accumulation to Luxemburg’s essay of the benefits of revolution vs the impossibility of reform, each of these works confronts history and the movement for social change through the lens of the experiences of nonmen in society.
