Care in context is edited by academics, based in South Africa and Switzerland, who have all published extensively in academic journals and books. Their writing covers a range of topics, including women and gender, HIV/AIDS and gender, gender-based violence and educational issues.
The book has a foreword by Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director for United Nations (UN) Women, who advocates for the equal sharing of care duties by men and women, in order to give girls an opportunity to reach their potential. In the preface, Joan C. Tronto of the University of Minnesota notes that there is an element of justice and human rights to caring, and that it is a holistic matter.
