For over sixty years, Selma James has been organizing from the perspective of unwaged women who, with their biological and caring work, reproduce the whole human race--along with whatever other labor they are performing. When this work is not economically prioritized, politically protected, or socially supported, there are dire consequences for the whole of humanity, beginning with women and children.

Our Time Is Now compiles several decades of James's work with a focus on her more recent writings. Steeped in the tradition of Marx, James draws on half a century of organizing across sectors, struggles, and national boundaries with others in the Wages for Housework Campaign and the Global Women's Strike. There is one continuum between the care and protection of people and of the planet: both must be a priority, beginning with a care income for everyone doing this vital work.
