Care refers to meeting the material and/or developmental and emotional needs of one or more other people through a direct relationship. It is the foundation of individual and societal wellbeing. Most care is provided by family members and neighbours and is unpaid. Until challenged by feminists, unpaid care was seen as a ‘natural’ feminine activity. The feminisation of caring responsibilities and the disproportionate time women as compared with men devote to care contributes to women’s subordinate position in economic and political life, perpetuating gender inequality.
