Abstract:

"Care is a social good; it not only sustains and reproduces society, but also underpins all development progress. Yet the vast majority of care work is done free, at home; and it is widely seen as a female responsibility. This gender division of labour has profound implications for women and girls - both in terms of their daily lives and options, and their status in society. Writers in this issue explore women's experience of care work in different contexts from a feminist perspective, highlighting the impact that care work has for their lives, choices and wellbeing. The goal is for care work to be divided fairly between the sexes, and between the household and other social institutions, including the state"--Back cover.
