Mapping A Women’s Economy

This week eighteen women came together at Govanhill Baths to map out a women’s economy

Our focus was on charting activity “below the water level” – all the unseen, unpaid labour, sharing, caring and love hours that go in to make our communities vibrant and sustainable.

In talking about the specific roles women play in this economy we discussed:

women in the arts,

domestic labour,

the caring for families that is essential in building our society,

sharing of knowledge and advice (in person and online),

community gardening,

activism,

communal cooking and food sharing,

use of domestic space as work space,

how we can actively care for and help women in other parts of the world,

emotional labour in the home,

emotional labour in the workplace
