the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“I feel overwhelmed by the fact that this pandemic has exposed so many structural inequalities across our society and it is women and girls who have faced disproportionate impacts. These have had far reaching consequences and many hard fought gains for women’s rights in areas such as domestic abuse, health, education and unpaid work have been eroded.”

why?

“I feel overwhelmed by the fact that I have seen women struggle enormously during this pandemic. The burden of home schooling combined with working from home, domestic responsibilities and emotional upheaval has left many women I know, in particular, feeling totally unfulfilled, overworked and unhappy.”

louise, 14.9.20.
