Abstract This chapter lays the theoretical foundations to a feminist approach of solidarity economy from a critical and “possibilist” perspective, which account for both the violence of domination and the potential to resist. It contributes to inform the discussion on solidarity economy, that has arisen in Latin America and some European countries, but remains less known in some countries, especially in the Anglosphere and in Asia. The chapter draws on examples and on the conceptual contributions of the several case-studies, focusing on the issue of the social reproduction. Based on broad understandings of the economy and the politics, we identify four main processes through which spaces of resistance can be built and we analyse how social reproduction can be politicized.
