Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women

by Silvia Federici Author

We tend to think of witch hunts as a thing of the past, carried out by paranoid and superstitious religious communities. Not so, argues Silvia Federici. In Witches, Witch-Hunting, and Women she shines light on the resurgence of witch hunts against women in our own contemporary world. There has been a new wave of interpersonal and institutional violence against women, alongside an expansion of capitalist social relations. Comparing today's violence against women to the dawn of capitalism, Federici offers a unique and profound interpretation of our socio-political climate, arming readers with her radical insight.
