In the traditional breadwinner & caregiver roles, men made money & women tended to home. As women stepped out to work & with affordability, the caregiving tasks were outsourced. Our disrespect for domestic work continued. We didn't value it earlier, we don't value it now (2/n)
Our collective disrespect for domestic work, which comes out in our introduction of homemakers ("she doesn't work"), makes us apathetic to this work. India does not recognise #domesticwork as work yet. (3/n)
