AbstractDuring the COVID-19 crisis, women shed more jobs and took on more of the additional childcare burden. As South Africa eased out of the stricter levels of lockdown, men returned more quickly than women to their pre-COVID-19 childcare levels. For women in particular, working from home meant striking a balancing act that left many feeling as if they were falling short both at home and at work. Drawing from recent research, HSRC researchers discuss how employers can better support women.
