The issue of care has gained much attention lately. But what do we really mean when we talk about “care”? Why is it still so undervalued in spite of its vital role? What are the main challenges faced by care workers? How does care interact with gender inequalities and what are progressive answers to overcome those inequalities? The report “Cherishing All Equally 2020: inequality and the care economy” report just published by FEPS (Foundation of European Progressive Studies) and TASC (Think-tank for action on social change) sheds some light on these timely questions. On this occasion, Mari Huupponen from Finland (Public Health Scientist and researcher at Kommunal, the Swedish largest trade union in Sweden) joined this FEPS Talks podcast to exchange on some of the main findings of the report with Laeticia Thissen, FEPS Gender Equality Policy Advisor.
