Published: Autonomedia - September 15th, 2004

In this slim but substantive piece Federici examines the history of the (particularly female) body during the transition to capitalism. She tirelessly excavates and links an array of subjects:

  • The mind/body conflict necessary for successful labor production
  • labor power and dismantling of worker solidarity 
  • colonialism and slavery
  • witch hunts and the demonization of women

and so much more.
