This paper discusses how the platform economy – dominated by a few firms – is extractivist, exploitative and expedient. It is based on an unsustainable model with scant regard for natural resources, and is built on the back of a global division of labor that bears the marks of race, class, gender, and geography. The paper emphasizes the necessity of a new social contract, as if women matter, ensuring social and economic citizenship for women. The paper has been authored by Anita Gurumurthy.
