Published Under the Garamond Imprint

Women are estimated to comprise nearly 80 per cent of both paid and unpaid care workers, yet their numbers do not coincide with their influence. Caring For/Caring About explores the complex nature of caring in Canadian society today. It examines the current research on women, home care, and unpaid caregiving, and identifies the social conditions under which caregiving is undertaken. The book examines the global and local forces that shape caregiving, as well as the diverse experiences of women who care.

Caring For/Caring About asks how we might create the conditions to make caring possible, for care is, after all, the objective and not the problem.
