This podcast originally appeared on Stitcher. Listen there.

But what if care were thought of as the bedrock of morality? While we know that more care work is performed by women, would a care-based approach to ethics be feminist, or merely feminine? What would it look like for us to build our institutions around the goal of promoting care? Debra and Ken take care to welcome Joan Tronto from the University of Minnesota, author of “Who Cares?: How to Reshape a Democratic Politics.”
