WATCH : NPPs Dr. Harini highlights role of ‘Unpaid care workers’ in her maiden parliament speech

NPP MP Dr. Harini Amarasuriya drew attention to women in Sri Lanka in her maiden speech in Parliament.

The MP highlighted the various means through which women contribute to the economy, calling it the unpaid care economy.

The MP said every woman plays a significant role in her home – preparing food, caring for children, caring for the elderly, the sick, people with special needs, and so on.

“Whether they get paid or not, this work is done without pay and society considers it the role and the responsibility of women. Although some women do this work as a job, it is unrecognized, unregulated and often not covered by any labour legislation. But if this work is not done, the economy cannot survive”, MP Harini Amarasuriya added. (NewsWire)
