The ethics of care has become a central and peremptory issue in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic. A virus has forced us to accept limitations we would never have imagined, has made us a little less arrogant and self-confident. In theory, this realisation should lead to a change of paradigm or mental framework, capable of balancing reason and feeling, in the exercise of the much-touted "emotional intelligence", whose practical contributions are not always evident. We must recognise that there is a right to be cared for and a duty to care that admits of no exceptions, that affects everyone and whose responsibility must be assumed individually and collectively.

Time for Care aims to silence the voices that still resist placing care in a prominent place, contrasting it with justice. Both are complementary values, as the categories attached to care break the binary conception of gender that feminism has not yet managed to replace. To privilege masculine categories - self, reason, mind - to the detriment of others considered feminine - emotions, the body, reciprocities - or to maintain this binary division that distributes the functions of each gender, implies maintaining patriarchy and weakening democracy. As Carol Gilligan says: "In a patriarchal context, care is a feminine ethic; in a democratic context, care is a human ethic".
