Dr. Bina Agarwal, Professor of Economics and Environment at the University of Manchester,  brilliantly explores the biases in the definition of work, and specifically women’s work, and that lead to the erasure and invisibilization of women’s labor in farms, homes and the informal sector, and how this continues to work as a patriarchal tool to economically disenfranchise women. Agarwal does not call for token accounting of women’s labor but rather a radical transformation that adequately compensates and recognizes women’s domestic and often unpaid labor, as well as the dismantling of the economic, social-political and cultural systems and structures that work against women.
