Global Care Advocacy workshop, 2015

This international workshop in Bangkok, Thailand, brought together activists, researchers, practitioners from diverse civil society organisations from 22-23 January 2015.

The workshop was part of our collective organisations’ on-going work to raise the policy visibility of the intersection between women’s unpaid care work and their access to decent work. It was a chance to hear from people around the world about their work to make care visible. 

In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals will be negotiated and finalised; this meeting was an opportunity for us to reflect on what more needs to be done to ensure women’s paid and unpaid care work is addressed in the SDGs and beyond. This meeting was also be an opportunity to also share national and international advocacy actions leading up to the March 2015 59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women in New York, US.
