This session is organized by the Feminisms and Degrowth Alliance (FaDA). It contains intersectional feminist reflections on Covid-19 and the politics of social reproduction, the Care Income, and the politics of care and commons in a context of ecological crisis. After a brief introduction to FaDA by Corinna Dengler, who hosts this session alongside Katy Wiese, we are looking forward to mini-inputs (7-10 minutes) by:

  • Anna Saave on the pandemic as an opening for a care-full radical transformation;
  • Susan Paulson on Covid-19, care & masculinities;
  • Selma James and Nina López from the Global Women’s Strike on the Care Income; and
  • Manuela Zechner on the politics of care and commons in a context of ecological crisis.

Following these inputs, there will be time to discuss the question how care can be organized in a degrowth society that strives for both intersectional gender and environmental justice first amongst the panelists and later on with the audience.
