Women’s Invisible Work in CapitalismWorkshop of the Centre for Gender and Culture
The Centre for Gender and Culture organized a workshop on the topic of invisible work, and on the issue how it defines the relations between women and men on both individual and societal level. The event was held in English on 9th December 2021.
The event at the Centre for Gender and Culture addressed invisible work and how it defines relationships between women and men on an individual and social level. Júlia Bakó is an activist in the Nők Egymásért Mozgalom (Women’s for Each Other Movement) and in connection with their campaign (“Make it visible!”), she talked about how invisible work affected Hungarian women, and why and how they dealt with this topic as a group of feminist activists. The sociologists Dóra Gábriel and Noémi Katona talked about the situation of elderly care in Hungary, which (although it affects many families) is far from being a visible topic in Hungarian public life today. In addition to care work in families, they talked specifically about the paid (but undocumented) home-based care services for elderly people. The roundtable discussion was moderated by Flóra Kökéndy (MA student). The event was recorded, and is available at: https://www.facebook.com/events/3085957531650339
