Outstanding article, Julia!

Profound , ambitious, actionable - big fan of your work. Your writing seems so personal and effecting and really brings out the angst that am sure many women feel. Did it take long to put this article together? Super zesty, passionate and succinct writing!

As outlined in Caroline Perez's excellent "Inisible Women", women do 75% of the global unpaid work. Women have always worked (paid and unpaid) but the traditional workplace hasn’t worked for women. It is tailored to an unencumbered worker, i.e., the male default. Because seeing humans as men is the default. We are so far from anything approaching equality between women and men.

I'd appreciate your feedback on my article as I think it's another data-driven companion piece to your wonderful writing, do let me know what you think! Its focussed on some of the other huge gender gaps that exist in our society and how to at least acknolwedge them.
