How Governments and Donors Can Help Drive a Feminist Care Agenda

by Oxfam Canada | October 10, 2019

Women’s unequal burden of care is increasingly being recognized as a key barrier to their social, political and economic empowerment, and to wider objectives like sustainable development and inclusive growth. Despite its importance, care work remains a neglected area of programming on WEE, receiving less than half of the financial investment from DAC donor countries compared to other WEE program areas. More attention and investment is needed to advance or “represent” the rights of paid care workers, to support large-scale transformations in public services, infrastructure and social norms, and to address the intersectional dynamics of care.
