The hidden load: How 'thinking of everything' holds mums back - BBC Worklife

By Melissa Hogenboom18th May 2021

When it comes to household responsibilities, women perform far more cognitive and emotional labour than men. Why is this, and is there anything we can do about it?

Organising a playdate, or booking the kids’ medical check-ups. Working out how to hide vegetables in their evening meals, or ensuring there’s enough on the shopping list. Worrying about whether your son is on track at school, your daughter needs new shoes and when to replace your washing machine. On their own, these may all seem like small tasks – but they mount up. And if you ask heterosexual couples with children which partner is most likely to handle them, it is probable that most would offer up the same answer: the mother.

Global Austerity Alert: Looming Budget Cuts in 2021-25 - Gender  

NEW YORK and NAIROBI, Apr 15 2021 (IPS) - Last week Ministers of Finance met virtually at the Spring Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank to discuss policies to tackle the pandemic and socio-economic recovery.

But a global study just published by the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University, international trade unions and civil society organizations, sounds an alert of an emerging austerity shock: Most governments are imposing budget cuts, precisely at a time when their citizens and economies are in greater need of public support.

The 2021 report highlights why bodily autonomy is a universal human right that must be respected and reveals the severity in which it is undermined, violated and denied. “Our communities and countries can flourish only when every individual has the power to make decisions about their bodies and to chart their own futures,” said UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem.


COVID & Pregnancy Guidelines

Извор: WUNRN – 13.04.2021

Are pregnant women at higher risk from COVID-19?

Pregnant women or recently pregnant women who are older, overweight, and have pre-existing medical conditions such as hypertension and diabetes seem to have an increased  risk of developing severe COVID-19. When pregnant women develop severe disease, they also seem to more often require care in intensive care units than non-pregnant women of reproductive age.

Due to changes in their bodies and immune systems, we know that pregnant women can be badly affected by some respiratory infections. It is therefore important that they take precautions to protect themselves against COVID-19, and report possible symptoms (including fever, cough or difficulty in breathing) to their healthcare provider.

WHO will continue to review and update its information and advice as more evidence becomes available.
