"To right wing men, we are private property. To left wing men, we are public property. In either case, we are not considered to be humans: we are things." - Andrea Dworkin “Right Wing Women”

Silvia Federici’s Caliban and the Witch lays out how this worked during the birth of capitalism brilliantly.
