Yes you can focus on family life and it doesn’t mean feminism is going into reverse just because you aren’t in paid work every day of your adult life! ‘Caring’ is a progressive too.
It’s time to embrace all the different possibilities and demand policies that enable women and men to do what is right for themselves, their families and their children – and by their parents too – throughout the complex ups and downs of family life.
It’s complex – it’s messy – but freedom has to be about the freedom to care without being penalised, as well as the freedom to work when that’s what we need to do.
