Even before COVID-19, women were playing on an uneven field. Now the pandemic is making everything worse. Women have been losing their jobs at higher rates than men. They are disproportionately represented in hourly jobs that don’t offer paid sick leave. And women of color are more likely to be risking their own health as frontline workers.
Understanding what women are experiencing right now is critical if we’re going to learn the right lessons from this crisis. LeanIn.Org is conducting a series of surveys to find out how COVID-19 is affecting women’s finances, job security, home life, and overall well-being. And because no one’s experience is universal, we’re seeking specific insight into the experiences of single mothers, essential workers, and women of color.
