It’s time to consider the impact the pandemic is having on women

Google ‘Mother’s Day’ images and you will be bombarded with flowers and greeting cards as well as pictures of domestic bliss. Happy children, sparkling homes, well stocked kitchens and home-made goodies surrounding blissful mothers staring adoringly at their partners and children.

But like an iceberg or a duck swimming in the pond, there is an awful lot of paddling going on underneath the surface. Kitchens don’t stock themselves and we all know children need assistance with everything.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
