In the early seventies, Silvia Federici was one of the co-founders of the International Feminist Collective, the organisation that launched the Wages for Housework (WFH) campaign and the debate on working conditions and pay for work in the home. In the nineties, after a period of teaching and research in Nigeria, she was active in the anti-globalisation movement and the U.S. anti-death penalty movement.

Federici is a member of the Midnight Notes Collective, and one of the co-founders of the Committee for Academic Freedom in Africa, an organisation 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’s studies and political philosophy courses at Hofstra University in New York.

SON[I]A talked to Silvia Federici about new models of communalism and of revalorisation of reproductive work that allow us to confront/address the debacle of the capitalist system.
