This collection brings together key texts and previously unavailable essays of the influential Italian feminist author and activist Mariarosa Dalla Costa. In recent years there has been both a renewed interest in theories of social reproduction and an explosion of women’s struggles and strikes across the world. The collection offers both historical and contemporary Marxist feminist analysis of how the reproduction of labour and life functions under capitalism.

Could be a good intro/polemic, serious holes though

The critiques of the basic anti-feminism among leftists and labor movements is pretty solid, however as a Marxist-feminist text there's a lot of depth lacking and questionable arguments. Overall pretty underwhelming, but could be a good intro.
