This book is not only a theoretical resource. It provides, through a number of different texts, an overview of the Marxist-feminist perspective of struggles which unfolded, and still do, on the terrain of social reproduction (struggles over food, housing, natural resources, public schools, public health care systems, public transportation system, public sites that provide recreation, pensions for the elderly, public social care programs, various forms of allowances and relief, i.e., demands that ...more

Daha çok Marksist ve feminist araştırmacıların iç polemiklerinden doğmuş gibi görünen, ama özellikle birkaç yazısıyla bunun ötesine geçebilmiş bir derleme. Hikaye kısaca şöyle:

Kapitalizmin malların, sermayenin ve emeğin sadece üretimini değil, yeniden-üretimini de örgütlemesi gerektiği fikri Marx'la gündeme geldi. Daha sonra 1960'larda Marksist ve feminist kuramcılar bu tespiti alarak önce ev-içi emeğe uyarladılar ve kadının emeğinin akşam eve yorgun ve aç dönen işçiyi yeniden ürettiğini, bu bak

A wonderful, deeply necessary expansion on the groundbreaking theory first fully articulated by Lise Vogel in "Marxism and the Oppression of Women." This volume further lays out the theoretical and philosophical groundwork of social reproduction theory in important ways. Its reach is extended into questions of race, imperialism, ability/disability, sexuality, "species-being", financialisation, and intersectionality, and other typically controversial issues in Marxism. All of these issues, maybe ...more

SRT deepens our understanding of the ways in which social oppressions of race, sexuality, ability, gender and more inhabit, shape and are shaped by the processes of creating labor power for capital. SRT gounds the insights of inte ...more

This was a great collection of essays focusing on old questions of Marxist-Feminism with new insights. I'm particularly impressed by David McNally's essay on "Intersections and Dialectics". From that part,

"From the standpoint of "the effect"-radicalized capitalism-we can say definitely that racism is a necessary feature of the historical capitalism in which we live. The effect has thus become a cause-and it is systematically reproduced in and through the reproduction of the capitalist mode of pr

This book outlines the role that social reproduction plays within capitalism as both a site of oppression and a site of potential resistance. I read it in my 'Feminism for the 99%' reading group and we found that it ignited interesting and thoughtful discussion. We especially enjoyed discussing the chapter on children and the chapter on sexuality. Cinzia Arruzza's final chapter was a passionate call to arms to an expansion of class struggle to the struggles of everyday life. After discussing tha ...more
