By “care work” we mean the whole series of activities, resources and social organisations that are needed for meeting human needs and sustaining personal well-being.

The feminist economy paradigm asserts the importance of these jobs for sustaining life, which are invisibilised and shifted to the family sphere. Assigning such jobs and their sustenance to women puts them in situations of inequality and discrimination.

A critical review of this economic and social model's effects and consequences needs to be made, to promote fairer, more just and more egalitarian relational and economic models that recognise the value of care as the main social element for making the sustenance of life possible and which get men equally involved and responsible for care work and domestic chores.
