Description

The Work of Love

The Role of Unpaid Housework as a Condition of Poverty and Violence at the Dawn of the 21st Century

Giovanna Franca Dalla Costa

With a new Introduction by Mariarosa Dalla Costa

Translated from the Italian by Enda Brophy
This classic “manifesta” of radical Italian feminism helped define the autonomist-inspired “wages for housework” movement, and identified the capitalist complicity of both the traditional nuclear family as well as the “liberation” of the woman as wage-earner. It is finally available in English translation.
