Most people think of having babies when they hear the word “reproduction”, but for many feminists the concept of social reproduction includes all the labour we do (and don’t do) that makes and remakes people and workers. Not only is this work gendered it is also racialised. We will delve into the feminist archives of Wages for Housework, Campaigns for Welfare and Domestic Worker Organising to learn from past feminist movements and thinkers to help develop a collective understanding of reproduction for today’s red feminists movements.
