We need a big conversation about (women as) carers

We need a big conversation about (women as) carers Ten days ago my Twitter timeline was humming with comments, mostly highly critical, about an article by Giles Fraser for the website Unherd. The article was entitled 'Why won't Remainers talk about family?' I don't know if you saw it but in it he set out the argument that the free movement at the heart of the European Union has unhelpfully disrupted our communities and the caring, reciprocal relationships within them.

What really got a lot of people angry was nothing to do with Brexit but a section that seemed to assume it is a woman’s job to look after her ageing parents if and when they need care. Age UK
