Please join Silvia Federici for a brief talk followed by discussion.

Silvia Federici is a feminist activist, writer, and a
teacher. In 1972 she was one of the cofounders of the International
Feminist Collective, the organization that launched the Wages For
Housework campaign internationally. In the 1990s, after a period of
teaching and research in Nigeria, she was active in the
anti-globalization movement and the U.S. anti–death penalty movement.
She is one of the co-founders of the Committee for Academic Freedom in
Africa, an organization dedicated to generating support for the
struggles of students and teachers in Africa against the structural
adjustment of African economies and educational systems. From 1987 to
2005 she taught international studies, women studies, and political
philosophy courses at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY. All through
these years she has written books and essays on philosophy and feminist
theory, women’s history, education and culture, and more recently the
worldwide struggle against capitalist globalization and for a feminist
reconstruction of the commons.
