Women's History Month: A Brief History of Women's Care Work and Child Care Policy

In recognition of Women's History Month, NCASE draws attention to a report on the state of child care in the United States.  Undervalued: A Brief History of Women's Care Work and Child Care Policy addresses the "persistent denigration of the care work performed by women, especially women of color," and the policy solutions that are necessary to create a system that works for both families and child care providers.

This report was published by the National Women’s Law Center, a non-profit organization working to expand the possibilities for women and their families by removing barriers based on gender, opening opportunities, and helping women and their families lead economically secure, healthy, and fulfilled lives—with a special focus on the needs of low-income women and their families.
