Vatican diplomat praises women’s caregiving in the home
March 21, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: In introductory remarks at a UN conference on “Valuing Unpaid Work and Caregiving” (video), Archbishop Bernardito Auza, apostolic nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, questioned “the idea that a person’s work outside the home is far more valuable than a person’s work inside the home ... It must be asked whether such a prioritization of a person’s work in the labor markets over care work at home flows from woman’s deepest desires or whether it’s an emulation of a flawed, hyper-masculine, way of looking at the world, one in which work, and what work can provide, is treated as the most important value.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
