How do we understand and value our own reproductive labor? How can we organize around this work in a way that is transformative both of our own lives and builds a collective opposition to a global capitalist system?
Throughout the 1970s the Wages for Housework movement developed an analysis of women’s reproductive labor. Silvia Federici was a cofounder of the movement, working within the New York Wages for Housework Committee from 1972 to 1977. Interference Archive invites you to join with Federici for a slideshow and lecture addressing the movement in historical context and analyzing its contemporary relevance, followed by breakout groups to address key questions raised and a group discussion.
