Feminist approaches to the urban have long focused on social reproduction—the gendered organization of the household, paid and unpaid reproduction of labour-power, and migration to cities. However, in the current juncture, what is at stake is the social reproduction of the planet itself. Social reproduction is at work in many sites and scales beyond the urban—including bodily, territorial, land-based, regional, and ecological, to name but a few. Proceeding from a focus on social justice rather than difference, we explore and expand upon feminist approaches to social reproduction from a variety of socio-spatial ontologies and from a range of orientations—including but not limited to anti-racist, anti-colonial, trans, eco-justice and indigenous perspectives—in order to understand how social reproduction is configuring both the urban and its constitutive outside.
