by pregnancy journalist
Summary List Placement Women’s careers have suffered during the pandemic. The earliest research on how women — especially mothers — have fared these past few months paints a dismal picture. In September alone, 865,000 women dropped out of the workforce, compared to 216,000 men, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A September report from McKinsey and Lean In found that one in four women is considering downshifting their career. These disparities reflect gender imbalances at home, where women in mixed-gender couples typically bear the brunt of caregiving and chores. So I was cautiously optimistic when I clicked […]
