WiSER and JWTC invite you to the Launch of a new Book by

Silvia Federici

Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle

Written between 1975 and the present, the essays collected in this volume represent thirty years of research and theorizing on questions of social reproduction and the transformations which the globalization process has produced. Originally inspired by Federici’s organizational work in the Wages For Housework movement, topics discussed include the international restructuring of reproductive work and its effects on the sexual division of labor, the globalization of care work and sex work, the crisis of elder care, and the development of affective labor. Though theoretical in style, the book is written in an explanatory manner that makes it both accessible to a broad public and ideal for classroom use.

Speakers: Catherine Burns (WiSER) and Sharad Chari (CISA)
