The Nordic welfare states are usually assigned the status of gender equal states, where full time paid work can be combined with motherhood (and daughterhood). This has been based upon large parts of care as a responsibility of the state and professionalization of care for pre-school children, sick and elderly. However, decades of neo-liberalism in terms of marketization, self-responsibilizing and increasing reliance on volunteering have had effects upon welfare professionals and those traditionally considered vulnerable. Tronto will address how care is affected and how these changes relate to a what some have seen as a change in the relationship between productive and reproductive work i.e. as the predominance of a new form of capitalism, a financialized capitalism.
