You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
I never once in my life thought I would live to see this day in any country on earth. So much of my life has been spent doing unpaid work-cleaning, cooking, organizing, and household-running….whether or not I had a “real job”, no matter what other obligations I have had. I STILL do the majority of housework. There is more than one reason my url is what it is.
Never in all my days would I have imagined I would see the day that women of color are paid for this amazing contribution to the running of the world, in any country, at any time.
Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to go cry tears of amazement that this has happened for any of us, anywhere, until there’s snot.
Holy crap!! Congratulations to the women of Venezuela!!
