Why is care undervalued and underpaid?

Chair: Susan Pashkoff, Socialist Resistance

Sometimes a significant crisis enables us to see things that were conveniently hidden before. Across the world roles traditionally performed by women such as health care and care work, food processing and distribution have been shown to be essential work which keeps our societies functioning.

This meeting will focus on care work as an example of women’s traditional work. It will look at the way the skills needed, including emotional labour, are undervalued because they are seen as an extension of women’s unpaid and ‘natural’ role in the family. It will explore the challenges and opportunities of organising workers in the sector and the implications of this for feminists and the left as a whole.
