This essay from UK think tank the Joseph Rowntree Foundation looks at what infrastructures are needed to cultivate a more feminist, caring digital society.

This essay was commissioned as part of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation programme Social justice in a digital age in response to James Plunkett’s essay, The care paradox. Rather than examining how digital social justice might be fitted within current capitalist systems, it attempts to expand the frame, and explores how infrastructures beyond the market are essential to fostering a more caring digital society.
