A couple of weeks ago, in my capacity as a blogger, I received an invitation from Oxfam Kenya to attend a breakfast media briefing they would hold on 13th February 2020 to enlighten media professionals on ‘Gendered patterns of unpaid care and domestic work ‘ At first glance, the question that came to mind was “What is care work?” I went to the Oxfam website to try and familiarize myself with the term. There were some articles on the site that descried care work and thus convinced me on the need to attend the briefing.
Breakfast was sumptuous. The spread was loooong and rich. Better yet the event was well organized and the engagement through and from the report presented was very enlightening. The guest speaker for the day Prof. Tabitha Kiriti was such an appropriate choice for the day. Not only from her presentation but her continuous interaction with those present that morning.
