My mom’s aimless wandering through our house, wondering how to get home, are almost daily now. But we are there for her, reminding her again and again, in calm tones, that she is home, that she doesn’t need to perform any tasks or prove her usefulness.
Honor the work of women equally, especially regarding the most critical job of all, raising healthy children consciously. Adopt policies at all levels of society which value caring and caregiving, and which support human development, creativity and concern for future generations. Tie the development of technology to the ethics of caring. Exclude from economic measurements of productivity, those activities which harm people and nature and include essential non-market life-supporting activities.
