Video: Wages for Housework: 50 years of campaigning – Empowering Women: A Care Income for People and Planet

Watch the webinar here:

Empowering caregivers is advanced as a strategy against poverty and for climate justice. This webinar showcases international efforts from the 1995 UN Beijing conference decision to measure and value unremunerated work in the home, on the land and in the community, to the Wages for Housework Campaign which spearheaded the movement for financial recognition and, like CSW, celebrates its 50th anniversary in March 2022. Hear from women human and land rights defenders in Burma, Canada, Haiti, India, Ireland, Peru, Thailand, UK and US, including mothers, domestic workers, and small farmers saying what a ‘care income’ would mean for them.
