In this work the author aims to provide an original response to the controversial questions surrounding women and caring. She demonstrates that feminist thinkers have failed to realize the political context which has shaped their debates about care. It is her belief that care cannot be a useful moral and political concept until its traditional and ideological associations as a "women's morality" are challenged. Tronto contests the association of care with women alone as empirically and historically inaccurate, as well as politically unwise. She goes on to illustrate the ways in which society degrades the importance of caring in order to maintain the power of those who are privileged.
