Undeclared War: Violence against women

Article from Silvia Federici. She is Professor Emerita in political philosophy and international studies at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.

FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES, radical feminist scholar and activist Silvia Federici has argued that we cannot change our everyday life without questioning the political and economic mechanisms of capitalism’s dominance. Indeed, feminism insists that everyday life itself must be recognized as a highly ordered political construction, with the relationships among gender, autonomy, and labor at its core. In the pages that follow, Federici previews her latest research on the staggering acceleration of violence against women worldwide—a quotidian and widespread manifestation of new networks of control.
