AnnotationThis paper concentrates on women's role as carers, which is taken to be central to women's lives generally, and particularly pertinent to women as social workers and as clients of social services. An exploration of the strengths and needs of women as carers, both paid and unpaid, enables us to make explicit the commonalities of women's lives as social workers and as clients, and can help us to challenge the presently devisive nature of the social worker-client relationship. In revaluing "care", we can improve social work practice and begin to question and change the current sexual division of labour. (RH).
