This article conceptualises the idea of ‘imposed volunteering’ as a process that enforces and shapes societal caring arrangements. Women, along with ethnic and working-class minorities, are pinpointed as being disproportionately given the care work responsibilities, which worsens social expectations and inequalities. This article pushes for an equal distribution of care work responsibilities.
