Silvia Federici speaks about her book 'Caliban And The Witch - Women, The Body, and Primitive Accumulation' that was published in English in 2004 and in German in 2012. In the book Federici develops the argument - following her historical studies - that capitalism was a reactionary answer to the massive anti-feudal liberation struggles in the late middle ages. In order to stop those (egalitarian) struggles and push through capitalism a general attack on women and the female body was started. The peak of this attack was the burning of the witches.
