The Arcane of Reproduction
Housework, Prostitution, Labor and Capital
Leopoldina Fortunati

One of Italy’s leading feminist thinkers critiques the traditional Marxist categories or production and reproduction, repositioning the central role of women’s labor and women’s bodies that Marx himself could not see. Leopoldina Fortunati profoundly illuminates the nature of the nuclear family, housework, the sexual division of labor and prostitution under capitalism, and underlines new arenas for feminist struggle arising from the unpaid labor of those (primarily women) who “produce and reproduce” (sexually, materially, psychologically, spiritually) the “productive” wages worker.
