After Work: What Is Left?

There is a certain tension when reflecting on the post-work era. With automatization of the most repetitive tasks, jobs traditionally associated with men are rejected, whilst stereotypically female jobs flourish. At the same time, the automatization of the world may lead to a situation in which the social reproduction carried out by women is extinguished as a necessary job. With post-autonomist Marxism and a second wave of materialistic feminism as their starting point, Helen Hester and Nick Srnicek lead the debate for rejecting the naturalisation of reproductive work and looking to generate a more effective feminist policy in the era of the end of work.
