DE LA TORRE DEL POZO*, Consuelo. The Care for Life in Common in Times of Pandemic and Post-Pandemic. Rev. humanid. Valpso. [online]. 2021, n.17, pp.209-229.  Epub Aug 01, 2021. ISSN 0719-4234.

In this essay, I reflect on the way that the COVID-19 pandemic deepens the care crisis and the radical, democratic transformation this turning point demands. Beginning with an assessment of the status of the free-riding on care (Nancy Fraser) and the gender division of labor, I continue with an analysis of the hegemonic justifications that, as Wendy Brown has shown, underpin such unbalance. I conclude with some remarks on the imminent challenge to advance towards a model of state, society and citizenship capable of securing a sustained and co-responsible social compromise with the care of the community.

Keywords : care crisis; work; women; democracy; substantive citizenship; freedom; equality.
