Women, work and lockdowns

Business Daily

On International Women's Day, we ask what Covid-19 lockdowns have done to gender equality at work - and at home. Mum Leslie Chiaramonte was forced to quit her nursing job amid the demands of juggling childcare and work. British politician Stella Creasy fears the pandemic will lead to a "tsunami" of unemployed mothers. But Holly Birkett, co-director of the Equal Parenting Project at the University of Birmingham, says it has helped to remove the stigma attached to flexible working.
