Caring for the Manifesto—Steps toward Making It an Achievable Dream

Raghuram, Parvati (2022). Caring for the Manifesto—Steps toward Making It an Achievable Dream. Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State & Society, 28(4) pp. 865–873.



The Care Manifesto is a timely volume coming as it does in the middle of a pandemic when the value of care for our countries and communities has been reinforced. We increasingly hear about the importance and value of care—care in hospitals, in communities, within families, and in myriad other places and spaces. Some of these care needs arise from the lack of care in other places; friendships, family networks, and other circles of care that have been left attenuated as people deal with the ravaging effects of COVID-19 on work, social life, and kinship networks. The ability of people to belong to affective communities—to meet and greet, to hug those whom they love, i.e. to express care in quotidian ways, have all been paused at best and removed at worst as the death toll from the pandemic rises.
