New Publication with The International Journal of Care and Caring

The article highlights the heterogeneity of employed women’s experience of family care for older persons by focusing on multigenerational households. First, A/Prof Moore argues that care for older persons must be understood in the context of multiple family responsibilities. Second, she shows that care for older persons occurs in a context of inequalities that remain in post-colonial settings where there is highly uneven access to material resources, high levels of unemployment, poverty and limited social welfare provision. From this understanding of care, A/Prof Moore argues that women’s position within wider care relations reveals elements of differentiation between women who occupy different class and racial positions.
