The unfinished Feminist Revolution

9. Jänner 2020 @ 18:00 - 21:00

Silvia Federici / Alyssa Schneebaum: The unfinished Feminist revolution: Influence of the global economy on housework

Sil­via Federici
An Ita­li­an-Ame­ri­can scho­lar, tea­cher, and acti­vist from the radi­cal auto­no­mist femi­nist Mar­xist tra­di­ti­on. She is a pro­fes­sor eme­ri­ta and Tea­ching Fel­low at Hof­stra Uni­ver­si­ty, whe­re she was a social sci­ence professor.
She was a foun­der of the Inter­na­tio­nal Net­work for Wages for House­work. During the ‘80s she lived and taught in Nige­ria, whe­re she also work­ed with women’s orga­niza­ti­ons and against the poli­tics of struc­tu­ral adjus­t­ment that were then being tes­ted throug­hout Africa.
She work­ed as a tea­cher in Nige­ria for many years, is also the co-foun­der of the Com­mit­tee for Aca­de­mic Free­dom in Afri­ca, and is a mem­ber of the Mid­night Notes Collective.

Alys­sa Schneebaum
Assistant Pro­fes­sor of Eco­no­mics, Vien­na Uni­ver­si­ty of Eco­no­mics and Busi­ness – WU
An aut­hor, rese­ar­cher and an excep­tio­nal femi­nist eco­no­mist who brings tog­e­ther gen­der rese­arch and eco­no­mics. Some of her recent rese­arch looks at how glo­ba­liza­ti­on is affec­ting the employ­ment of women in deve­lo­ping count­ries and how wealth in Aus­tri­an house­holds is divi­ded bet­ween men and women. She spe­cia­li­zes in Labor Eco­no­mics, Appli­ed Micro-eco­no­me­trics, eco­no­mic ine­qua­li­ty, and the eco­no­mics of the fami­ly. Schnee­baum holds a Ph.D. in eco­no­mics and a gra­dua­te cer­ti­fi­ca­te in advan­ced femi­nist stu­dies from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Massachusetts-Amherst.

“As long as repro­duc­ti­ve work is deva­lued, as long as it is con­side­red a pri­va­te mat­ter and women’s respon­si­bi­li­ty, women will always con­front capi­tal and the sta­te with less power than men, and in con­di­ti­ons of extre­me social and eco­no­mic vulnerability.”
Sil­via Fede­ri­ci – Revo­lu­ti­on at point Zero (2012)

“Capi­ta­lism still reli­es on the crea­ti­on and avai­la­bi­li­ty of future gene­ra­ti­ons of workers. The patri­ar­chal hete­ro­se­xu­al nuclear fami­ly is still the most (eco­no­mic­al­ly) effi­ci­ent way for capi­ta­list socie­ties to orga­ni­ze them­sel­ves, becau­se within the fami­ly, women do care work for free.”
Alys­sa Schnee­baum – All in the Fami­ly: Capi­ta­lism, Patri­ar­chy, and Love (2013)
