Executive Summary

In order for women to break through the vicious cycle of institutionalized sexism, we need to transform deeply gendered attitudes around caregiving; coalesce existing movements for child care, paid family and medical leave, and long-term services and supports; and mobilize public demand for high-quality, flexible care options that include valuing the work of paid and unpaid caregivers. This project brings together women's, disability justice, and BIPOC movement leaders who have been working successfully over the past decade to transform the way Americans think about care, to imagine the equitable care infrastructure that women and families of all kinds need and deserve. Our team of highly respected thought leaders, advocates, and field-builders will collaborate in an unprecedented coalition to infuse the idea of care as a shared responsibility into communities across the country and to build the cultural and political muscle necessary to forge lasting, large-scale solutions.
