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)
