Social anthropologist Paik Young-Gyung argues, through feminist post-developmentalist theory, that fundamental social change after Covid-19 is impossible without a re-appreciation of care labor, that is, that the achievement of care democracy is essential to the transformation of our ecological system. Diagnosing that not only the current undervaluing of care labor, which women have been forced to take on, but also the reduction of the meaning of care to certain work areas, signify a crisis in our system, she argues that we need to expand the concept of care as a value that resists developmentalism and to form alliances with various forces currently engaging in care work.
