The Silent Workforce

The COVID-19 response has disproportionality impacted women in part because women are more likely to have shouldered the burden of additional caring responsibilities during lockdown, and secondly women are more likely to work in COVID hit sectors such as hospitality and tourism whose futures remain uncertain.

If action is not taken in the UK to ensure women are successfully brought back into the labour market and overcome wider gender-based divisions that have been amplified during COVID, we will be turning back the clock to an ever-increased disparate society where women are both consciously and unconsciously nudged out of work or into underemployment so they provide the care society requires.
