“Being a Mother in the Pandemic Was Intense”
Lived Experiences of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Britain and Japan
In a world where not one country has achieved gender equality and where in every country women do the majority of unpaid carework, socially constructed gender norms perpetuate women’s secondary status to men.

When women become mothers, the social locations of gender and parental status intersect to exacerbate inequality.
