The pandemic, with its epicenter in Italy, Spain and the United States, has laid bare the deep contradictions of patriarchal capitalism, where care work and the most precarious jobs continue to fall to women. During the decades of mobile phone number list neoliberal offensive, multiple trends unfolded that increased the intertwining of class, gender, and racial grievances for working women like never before.
While the State drastically cut mobile phone number listthe budgets for health, education and social services –thus preparing the collapse of the health system in the face of pandemics like the current one–, the expansion of mobile phone number list private companies in these sectors, which employ women, precarious and without rights, was encouraged.

And in this crisis, that contradiction also explodes. How do you combine teleworking with taking care of your children throughout the day? Or how do you properly take care of your family, if you've been laid off and have to choose between paying rent or buying food?
