Resetting Normal: Women, Decent Work, and Canada's Fractured Care Economy

Organization: 
The Canadian Women's Foundation, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Ontario Nonprofit Network, Fay Faraday

Women in Canada have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to an extent that threatens to roll back equality gains.

Cultivating Community Economies: Tools for Building a Liveable World

Organization: 
The Community Economies Collective
Author: 
J.K. Gibson-Graham & the Community Economies Collective

The Community Economies Collective (CEC) seeks to bring about more sustainable and equitable forms of development by acting on new ways of thinking about economies and politics. Building on J.K. Gibson-Graham’s feminist critique of political economy, the CEC challenges two problematic aspects of how “the economy” is understood: seeing it as inevitably capitalist, and separating the economy from ecology.
