Caregiving in inequality, a comparative analysis of the distribution of unpaid care work in Mexico and Argentina from a gender and legal perspective.

Speaker: Camila Buffarini

Institution: Universidad Autònoma de México

Her research aims to analyse the convergences and divergences in the current distribution of unpaid care work in Mexico and Argentina, in order to bring together the conceptualisation of the human right to care and comprehensive care systems. The analysis is based on a critical theoretical framework, called the gender critique of law, incorporates the tools provided by the human rights approach, the gender perspective and intersectionality, and seeks to demonstrate that the lack of recognition, redistribution and reduction of women’s unpaid care work violates the human rights to care, equality and autonomy of girls and women.
