This chapter uses the work of the political philosopher Nancy Fraser to examine how notions of power operate in theories of social reproduction, in particular the often-latent spatialities at play in concepts of value and justice. Bringing together Fraser’s writings on scales of justice and social reproduction, I use my own research on gendered migration to unpack assumptions about the nature and role of scale and space. I argue that problematic dualisms are implicit in some theorizations of social reproduction, including of public and private spheres and global and local domains of action. I examine Fraser’s invocation of capitalism’s ‘hidden abodes’ to explore how she relates her conceptualization of crisis to her theorization of social reproduction and suggest that her framework is a useful and underutilized resource for human geographers, albeit one with limitations for analyses of ‘worldly’ political struggles.
