You Will Learn...
Use the feminist approach to the economy embodied in the EWL’s Purple Pact (European Women’s Lobby Purple Pact)as a starting point the full participation of women in all areas of life and equal representation of women in all their diversity at all levels of decision-making, including economic decision-making. It aims to build an inclusive economy for the well-being of all.
The focus is a universal social care system with an infrastructure that can provide social and care services for all and quality services which are accessible and affordable. It also stresses the fact that environmental issues have always been, and are increasingly, also a matter of human rights and social justice and are thus feminist issues and an integral part of feminist economic analysis.
This Module is adapted after all the chapters of the Purple Pact which address the four pillars of the feminist care economy conceptualized as the Purple Economy.
