Shulevitz’s excellent article frames the basic income debate around gendered issues in the labor market and economy. She references the recent basic income developments in Finland, Canada, and the Netherlands, but her main points concern the benefits a basic income would bring to women by finally rewarding care work, which is disproportionately carried out by women.  This article is a wonderful introduction to the basic income debate and gives much needed time discussing its impact on women.
