Covid- 19 and Working-Class Women Study

Date Posted: Thursday 27th May 2021

Over the past year, WBG has been collaborating with researcher Tracey Warren from Nottingham University and Clare Lyonette from the University of Warwick, to analyse the impact of the pandemic on working-class women.

We have carried out detailed analyses on topics including keyworking, furloughing, reduced hours, financial security, the division of housework and childcare, home-schooling, flexible working, and the overall effects of the pandemic on workers’ mental wellbeing.

You can access the findings below.

Briefing note 1: Employment and Mental Health
