The session will feature women's rights activists, representing grassroots women leaders and experts on the care economy with the key objective to:

  • Introduce a proposed framework with key policy recommendations to reframe the care economy and advance a feminist social pact on care, building on a collective brief developed by the network on a new "Global Social Pact on Care."
  • Introduce the proposed 6R Framework, which are key political demands aimed at redistributing, recognizing, reducing care, ensuring representation, reframing the economy as a caring economy, and fulfilling caregivers and receivers' rights. 
  • Collectively build a global advocacy strategy for a global call to reframe the economy as a caring economy via mutual learning and solidarity across regions.
