This chapter brings together the theoretical and empirical findings of earlier chapters to outline the main features of a feminist temporal utopia or ‘uchronia’. It provides a contrasting assessment of existing time cultures and temporal orientations in contemporary Western welfare states, and a comparative summary and discussion of policies around working time and caring responsibilities. The chapter identifies some forces for progressive change while recognising the likely strength of opposition. It concludes by restating the book's central argument: that the politics of time should be at the heart of feminism and that the feminist politics of time highlights political issues which are of profound importance for all.

Keywords:   feminist temporal utopia, time cultures, temporal orientations, Western welfare states, caring responsibilities, politics of time, feminism
