Equity Struggles, Housework, and Globalization

This essay should be based on the essays in Unions, Equity, and the Path to Renewal and Silvia Federici’s Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle. This is not a combined book review; you must craft your own line of arguments.

The two books should provide you with ideas and facts to first hammer out your arguments, then get them into a consistent order, and finally support them with empirical facts. Researching other materials that speak to the essay topic is an option, but not a requirement. Your essay should address these facets of the topic: relations between paid and unpaid work social reproduction challenges that equity-seeking women face in paid work and unions relations between women and other equity-seeking groups globalization
