From Reproducing Labour Power to Reproducing our Struggle: A Strategy for a Revolutionary Feminism
Second Annual Lecture in the Laws of Social Reproduction, 13 July 2021
This annual lecture is part of the Laws of Social Reproduction project led by Professor Prabha Kotiswaran and based at Kings College London and IWWAGE Delhi. Drawing on feminist legal theory and deploying methodologies ranging from doctrinal case law analysis to ethnographies of women's labour markets, this project problematises law's jurisdictional boundaries over women's reproductive labour and critiques the varied, even contradictory, legal regulation of reproductive labour. Given the current interest, nationally and internationally, in unpaid care work, this project offers a timely intervention by proposing a holistic understanding of reproductive labour and exploring prospects for an alternative regulatory matrix to further women's economic justice.
