This paper provides an interview transcript between the two authors, and discusses the land-mark paper “Counter-planning from the Kitchen” which as explained by the author, was a statement about their position taking on socialist feminists and the left in general. Using ‘kitchen’ as a very broad way of saying ‘reproduction’, the author explained that in capitalism, the kitchen is a microfactory; “it is the beginning of an assembly line that ends in the factories and other placed of waged work”. The author concludes by arguing that the creation of more cooperative forms of reproduction is an issue for everyone.
