In its Statement on regognizing mothers' role, MMM focussed on 2 main points, recognizing unpaid family care work as work, and recognizing unpaid family care work as valuable work, and provided recommendations on each of these 2 points. 


The issue of Unpaid Care Work is gaining increasing visibility at the international level as one of the main structural barrier to Women's Economic Empowerment and the realization of women's rights. It was on the Commission's agenda and discussed and mentioned in many if not most its paralel and side-events.
