Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation is a 2004 book by Silvia Federici. It is among the most important works to explore gender and the family during the primitive accumulation of capital.] As part of the radical autonomist feminist Marxist tradition,[2] the book offers a critical alternative to Marx’s theory of primitive accumulation.[1] Federici argues that the witch hunts served to restructure family relations and the role of women in order to satisfy society’s needs during the rise of capitalism
