From Caliban and the Witch I learned that capitalism reorganized peasant labor away from a more egalitarian split amongst men and women to one that emphasized men as laborers and women as the producers (through the womb) and caretakers of laborers. This system has prevailed since that time. Today, laborers are not exclusively men, as strength is no longer a job requirement in large swaths of the job market, and the womb is no longer required to produce laborers (think robotics and AI). This is a massive shift in the dynamics of the system. — Michael Bogdanffy-Kriegh
