Ethics of Care

This chapter considers the relationship between intersectionality and care ethics. It takes as its starting point the importance of the concepts of identity and relationship and the centrality of these concepts to both care ethics and intersectionality; this is followed by two substantive sections. Drawing on a political ethic of care the first considers how care ethics may lend itself to the challenge of identifying and exploring the synergistic effects of interlocking structures of power which impact upon intersectional experiences of identity. The lenses are then reversed, to consider the importance of an intersectional approach when considering care so as to ensure alertness in the creation of new identities and the way that these identities need to be understood in terms of intersectionality.

Keywords:   care ethics, identity, intersectionality, subject positions, carer
