Witches, Witch-hunting, And Women
From the spread of new forms of witch-hunting in various regions of the world to the worldwide escalation of the number of women murdered daily, the evidence is mounting that a new war is being waged against women. What are its motivations and the logic behind it? Against this background, I also examine the relation between the different forms of this violence — familial, extra-domestic, institutional — and the strategies of resistance that women worldwide are creating to put an end to it. Since the beginning of the feminist movement, violence against women has been a key issue in feminist organising, inspiring the formation of the first International Tribunal on Crimes against Women, held in Brussels in March , with the presence of women from 40 countries, bringing testimonies about forced motherhood and sterilisation, rape, battering, incarceration in mental hospitals, and the brutal treatment of women in prisons. Since then, feminist anti-violence initiatives have multiplied, as have laws passed by governments in the wake of the United Nations World Conferences on Women.
We are witnessing a new surge of interpersonal and institutional violence against women, including new witch hunts. This surge of violence has occurred alongside an expansion of capitalist social relations. In this new work that revisits some of the main themes of Caliban and the Witch , Silvia Federici examines the root causes of these developments and outlines the consequences for the women affected and their communities. As well as an investigation into the causes of this new violence, the book is also a feminist call to arms. It is even better to act armed with her insights. Her focus moves between women criminalized as witches both at the dawn of capitalism and in contemporary globalization.
Caliban and the Witch , her titanic work on witch trials as a tool of early capitalism, will take your head apart and put it back together. Federici is not just relevant but getting more so every second.
