    One thought on “Wages for Housework: The New York Committee 1972–1977; History, Theory, Documents”

    1. We need more collections like this one--combining theoretical documents with records of organizing practices, flyers, pamphlets, internal strategic planning and more. Also, so many of the arguments that we're still figuring out how to make today, Federici and her comrades were making in the 1970s. Full review forthcoming in a proper publication.
