"[This] is the revolutionary Black and Brown, queer and trans, disabled, non and many partnered parenting manual manifesto we have been waiting for. I am so grateful to see this book in the world, collecting pieces of work I have soaked up eagerly when I read them online, in zines, as handouts in workshops and in now out of print magazines....This book is revolutionary, marginalized, resisting mama/parenting love lifeforce magic."

“Feminist City is a damning stab at the subtle and overt manipulation of women in urban spaces. Kern’s interwoven references to her personal experience through childhood, adulthood, and motherhood make her deeply researched and whip-smart work infinitely readable. Kern shows that the ability of all women to exploit the city fully is a valuable, necessary gauge for city worth.”
– Lezlie Lowe, author of No Place To Go: How Public Toilets Fail Our Private Needs
“Reading Federici empowers us to reconnect with what is at the core of human development, women’s labour-intensive caregiving—a radical rethinking of how we live.”
– Z Magazine
"Susan Ferguson has been a leader in the efforts to develop social reproduction theory. With Women and Work, she now takes on the historical context for its development. Her focus on the history of the concept ‘labour’ in Marxist and feminist thought brilliantly reshapes our understanding of our past, present, and future."
– Lise Vogel, author of Marxism and the Oppression of Women
“Visceral, raw, and personal, All of Me is the barbaric yawp of womanhood unrestrained. Ranging from the confessional to the call to action, this collection of deeply personal writings tears back the veil of womanhood to show the glorious and gritty guts of it all. Unfiltered, unadulterated, open; witness the wounds and the wisdom of what it means to be a woman today.”
– Lasara Firefox Allen, author of Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality
“Silvia Federici’s theoretical capacity to articulate the plurality that fuels the contemporary movement of women in struggle provides a true toolbox for building bridges between different features and different people.”
– Massimo De Angelis, professor of political economy, University of East London
The Fight for Adoption Disclosure and the Search for My Son
"I wept. I didn’t expect to, but I wept.... I wept because with honesty and candor Marilyn took me with her: ‘unwed’ mom, birth mother, alone again, married woman, mom again, elected politician. She took me with her to places I had never been. Perhaps you have been there yourself and it will be familiar. If not, you will experience the complexities, the surprising brutality, the love, the hope of young moms longing for their own."
– Gerry Rogers MHA, St. John’s Centre, NL, feminist filmmaker
