The pandemic has had a devastating effect on diverse mothers and family caregivers in Canada.
They carry so much unpaid care and household responsibilities. At the same time, many of them face high risks in their paid jobs at the frontlines of care work. And they’ve experienced a great deal of job losses in the pandemic. The burdens and barriers are worse for those experiencing poverty, discrimination, and gender-based violence.
The work women and gender-diverse people do to take care of us is undervalued. Gender justice is the solution.
