Description

This pandemic has exposed our societies’ reliance on women: as chief child-minders, home-educators, breadwinners, and carers within their families (burdens which were further exacerbated by the pandemic). This ongoing expectation of unpaid care work -time women often spend prioritising the health of others, rather than their own - coupled with existing systemic barriers to women’s health, prevents women from getting the healthcare they need to maintain their health throughout their lives. This is especially true in later life, when, for reasons still largely unknown, women tend to fall ill and develop disabilities at a higher rate than their male peers.
