The DN of the Debate. Women's unpaid work is worth at 100 trillion(in Swedish)

We live in a world where extreme poverty co-existing side-by-side with boundless wealth. The unequal distribution of the world's resources demonstrates a sexist economic system, which involves a significant degree of discrimination of the women, and the great inequality between men and women. Globally, the taking of men, 50 per cent more than that of men and with the world's 22 richest men are more than women in Africa. This shows the humanitarian organization Oxfam's new report 'Time to care', which we will publish in the face of the World economic forum meeting in Davos.

the Reason why some of the richest are so rich and others so poor is not a matter of who's fought the hardest. Often, it is the place of your parents ' bank account, or your gender, that determines the quality of the education and the jobs you get. At the top of the economic hierarchy, are growing miljardärernas assets at an exponential rate. At the bottom of the scale, adding at the same time, women's 12.5 billion hours of unpaid domestic and care work each and every day.

. Oxfam has calculated that the economic value of women's unpaid domestic and care work is at least equal to eur 10.8 trillion dollars a year. There are more than three times that of the global tech industry. Women are more than three-quarters of all household and care work worldwide. They will take care of the children, the sick, the elderly, and to perform the majority of housework, cooking, cleaning, fetching water and firewood. It's not that women don't lönearbetar, but the fact that they work too much, and that the vast majority of the work they do is unpaid and invisible. Women living in rural areas and in low-income countries adding up to 14 hours per day on care work. There are up to five times more than that of men in these communities.

the financial Institutions, the IMF has pushed governments to decrease the funding of public services, and has consistently failed to measure the impact of these policies on women and girls, who are living below the poverty line.

Buchhu in India are going up at three o'clock each night in order to make your home and family ready for the day. In order to collect water, she must walk three kilometers one way, a walk, and she does three times a day. On the days she is working full-time with the construction going on, and when she comes back home at five o'clock she spends seven hours to fetch water and firewood, cleaning, washing, cooking, and taking care of the children. Her working day ends at midnight. She is being exposed too often to violence at the hands of her husband, for example, and if she failed any of the tasks. ”I don't even have time to die. Who is going to take care of them and earn money for the family while I'm gone?” said Buchhu.

. Governments will continue to be the taxing of the richest of the low, at the expense of the poorest in the country. In particular, it is women from vulnerable social groups who are disadvantaged by an underfunded welfare of people, and when they are forced to make up for the omsorgskrav as a society, fail to live up to.

When the women perform care work for free, will the governments and corporations get away with the impression that the extra investment in public services such as health care and education are not necessary.

there is Much to suggest that other forms of care will have to be done in the future. The world's population grows and gets older. In addition, solutions to the climate crisis to increase pressure on the care work in the next decade or so. For example, the order is estimated up to 2.4 billion people, live in areas without adequate access to water by the year 2025. This can be a result of women and girls, who are often responsible for the family's water supply, are forced to walk further to fetch it. The personal cost of the increase in the workload of the it can run families into the middle - and low-income countries are living below the poverty line, and women, deeper in poverty, as a means both to lack of time and money.

the Governments priority is low taxes for the wealthiest, in front of a functioning, well-being. Instead, in order to expand social programs and spending in order to stave off the impending omsorgskrisen, and to deal with the inequalities, then it is more than two-thirds of the world's countries that are privatising, or a reduction in spending on public services. This is the kind of neoliberal policies have been shown to increase economic inequality. Nevertheless, it is still at the core of the advice, and the conditions under which the international financial institutions to developing countries. Financial institutions such as the IMF, have pushed governments to decrease the funding of public services, for example, in north african countries, and has consistently failed to measure the impact of these policies on women and girls, who are living below the poverty line.

in Order to put an end to the unequal division of unpaid caring work, substantial policy measures. In order to reduce inequalities, governments must invest in infrastructure, and the national omvårdnadssystem of people who have no access to clean water, sanitation, electricity, education, and social services for children, the sick and the elderly. People in poverty often do not have access to the infrastructure, technology, and policy investments that can reduce the number of hours they spend working without pay.

for a Progressive tax system, and investing in the wellbeing the key to reducing economic inequality, and the inequality between men and women, which affect women in poverty. If the richest people, the percentage paid by one half of one percent more in taxes on their fortunes, it had, for example, been able to pay for the 117 million new jobs in the social services sector in the next ten years. The governments of the need to combat tax evasion and the taxation of wealth and capital, the fairness of the levels, and use the proceeds to create a human economy that works for everyone.
