In her groundbreaking book titled Women in the Nineteenth Century, Margaret Fuller suggests a remedy for the degradation of work for women stating, “Women are the best helpers of one another” (117). Fuller’s statement has reflections in many works written at the end of the nineteenth century such as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, The Silent Partner (1871),  Alcott’s Work (18739, and Blake’s Fettered for Life (1874) all of which focus on sisterhood, solidarity, and feminine bond among women across class, race, and nationality as a survival mechanism within capitalist economy.

We are living in the Anthropocene, a geological epoch in which we wield power over the entire planet. But who, exactly, is the “we” in that sentence? As an imaginary, the Anthropocene allows “us” to understand “ourselves” as members of a species that is transforming “our” planet. As a material phenomenon, however, the Anthropocene divides “us” into disparate groups—whites and people of color, upper classes and working classes, men and women, citizens and refugees. How, in Bruno Latour’s terms, can we track the translations between nonhumans and humans? How, from Dipesh Chakrabarty’s perspective, can we straddle the thought rifts between the planetary and the global?

“I could conceive of another Abraham,” Kafka writes in a letter to a friend, “who was prepared to satisfy the demand for a sacrifice immediately, with the promptness of a waiter, but was unable to bring it off because he could not get away, being indispensable; the household needed him, there was perpetually something or other to put in order, the house was never ready; for without having his house ready, without having something to fall back on, he could not leave. This the Bible also realized, for it says: ‘He set his house in order.’”
