I’m So Tired

I’m tired. You want to know why I’m so tired at the end (I hope) of a pandemic where women took the brunt of all the extra home labor that had to be done? Where women lost most of the jobs because they couldn’t do everything? Where women, who have been managing kids around home jobs for centuries, get ignored when men have cute Zoom moments where the toddler stops in for a moment before being whisked away by Mom?

Its because women still do most of the childcare and housework in the world. But yay for progress because now we can also work jobs full-time and still do the emotional work of all the people at our jobs…
