Pennoni Panel: COVID-19 & the “She”cession

Wednesday, March 3rd from 3:30PM-5:00PM EST via Zoom!

While the pandemic has forced many of us to reevaluate work and the structure of the economy, it has also caused us to reckon with women’s labor. The lack of access to childcare has set working mothers back decades, “pink collar” occupations were uprooted by protocols, and in December 2020, 140,000 women lost their jobs, the majority of whom were Black and Latina. What do we mean when we talk about women’s labor? How do we account for the divide between those who can work from home and those who cannot? Does working from home provide women more agency or does it overly blur the lines between work, home, and leisure time in ways that women are working more than ever? This discussion will unpack the ways in which COVID-19 has disrupted women’s labor for better and worse.
