In a year mired by uncertainty, the economic and societal shocks of the pandemic impacted women and men differently—across the world, women were more likely to lose jobs, cut back paid hours worked, and became the default childcare providers in households.  » Read more about: Not entirely a “she-cession” but globally women are the key to economic recovery  »
