The lockdowns have increased working from home, which has led to conflicts between work and home life. Women still do the majority of unpaid care work, including childcare or taking care of older family members.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day on 8 May, the European Parliament is focussing on gender equality, mental health and unpaid care work. A special meeting, hosted by Robert Biedroń, chair of the women’s rights committee, will take place via videoconference on Thursday 3 March from 9.00 to 12.00 CET and will be live streamed. Watch it here.
