Selma James is a women's rights and anti-racist campaigner and author. From 1958 to 1962 she worked with C.L.R. James in the movement for West Indian federation and independence.

In 1972 she founded the International Wages for Housework Campaign, and in 2000 helped launch the Global Women's Strike whose strategy for change is Invest in Caring not Killing.

She coined the word "unwaged" which has since entered the English language. In the 1970s she was the first spokeswoman of the English Collective of Prostitutes. She is a founding member of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network. She co-authored the classic The Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community which launched the "domestic labour debate."

This collection brings together her most important writings: including A Woman's Place (1952), Women, the Unions and Work, or what is not to be done (1972), Sex, Race and Class (1974), Wageless of the World (1974), The Rapist Who Pays the Rent (1982 co-author), The Ladies and the Mammies-Jane Austen and Jean Rhys (1983), Marx and Feminism (1983), Hookers in the House of the Lord (1983), with extracts from Strangers & Sisters: Women, Race and Immigration (1985 Ed. and Introduction), The Global Kitchen-the Case for Counting Unwaged Work (1985 and 1995), and The Milk of Human Kindness-Defending Breastfeeding from the AIDS Industry and the Global Market (co-author, 2005).
