The NY Times prints my letter about elder care

In the New York Times on January 20: “In her cogent look at the link between gender and poverty (“How Can We Help Men? By Helping Women,” Opinion, Jan. 12), Stephanie Coontz calls for prioritizing affordable child care. Decent, reliable elder care is just as important. Women perform the vast majority of this unpaid labor as well, and the age of the person requiring care should be irrelevant.”  ASHTON APPLEWHITE, Brooklyn, Jan 12, 2014
