A NEW WAY OF ORGANISING
We are an international grassroots network campaigning for recognition and payment for all caring work, in the home and outside. Mothers and other carers, of every gender, are entitled to a living wage, a Care Income – in cash, land, non-polluting technology… – for their caring work for people and planet.
A LIVING WAGE FOR MOTHERS & CARERS
We campaign to end power relations of sex, race, class, income, nation, immigration status, city and countryside, age, disability, occupation, gender identity, North and South … (See organisations part of GWS.) We work with Payday, a network of men who share our aims.
