Congressman Fred Keller noted that 55 percent of all jobs lost during the pandemic had been occupied by women. Why is that? Inez Stepman told him where to go for his answer:
Congressman Fred Keller: Why are women-held positions disproportionately affected by COVID-19?
Inez Stepman: That's a question you should take up with Randi Weingartenpic.twitter.com/44gNFS2yXC

This is amazing and absolutely right. 🔥
You wanna know why women had to quit the workforce in record numbers in 2020? Because they had to homeschool their kids.
Even though they don’t have to, many still *chose* to stay home and do childcare. You want women back? Open schools.

and it cascades from there. When mom stays home (teacher or laid off nurse) the family budget changes as well resulting in less eating out so the waitresses are affected, the cleaning lady is dismissed, no day care is needed . . . plenty of women are affected by closed schools.

But Randi Weingarten maintains her union had been trying to open schools since April 2020.
CNN would just like to remind you that while COVID19 is killing more men, it's the women who are really suffering https://t.co/qddM9eJdcX
