At the peak of the COVID-19 crisis, women carried the brunt of the care labour on their shoulders, either paid as nurses and doctors or unpaid through family responsibilities. In the healthcare sector worldwide, 70% of the workers are women. Before the lockdown, women were already spending on average 4.1 hours more than men per day on domestic chores. The lockdown has inevitably worsened this situation.

In the Euro-Mediterranean region, our economic systems already benefit greatly from the under-paid or unpaid care work of women. Furthermore, in countries where better-off families delegate care work to domestic care workers, mostly migrant women or women of colour, the COVID-19 crisis has had a severe impact with numerous lay-offs without any safety nets.

In this webinar, we will draw the lessons which can be learnt from this crisis regarding the complex issue of care labour and the economy. What responses can be envisaged to ensure care is valued and shared equally by all?
