U-M Ford School of Public Policy professor of economics and public policy Betsey Stevenson discusses in The New York Times and other media outlets the disproportionate impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on women and mothers in the United States. Stevenson highlights “three waves of difficulty” for women in the workforce, such as areas of the economy that have suffered from major unemployment in which women dominate, state and local governments that have eliminated jobs, and the closing of childcare and implementation of remote learning. The faculty expert notes that the gender caps have been exacerbated, and women are struggling to get a “foothold back in the economy.”
