Summary
Social responsibility is not self-generating. Instead, it is learned through purposefully targeted listening, combined with an intent to both act in response to needs one has heard as well as to continually evaluate one’s actions. Feminist care ethics offers us a scaffolding within which we can learn how to sense social responsibility, act on that ethical knowledge, and then measure the results of our actions. Social responsibility as an ethic of care offers us a way to teach social responsibility to others in the profession and a way to advocate for the value of our labor to those outside of the profession.
