Women who work(ed), in their own voices

The Take

Mar 8 2021 • 15 mins

International Women’s Day is inextricable from women’s labor, but the pandemic has pushed unprecedented numbers of women out of the workforce around the globe. For women still working, the pandemic has divided those who work at home from those who don’t. We hear from women in different parts of the world, from a psychiatrist for new mothers, a sex workers’ advocate, and one of Al Jazeera’s own journalists.

In this episode:

Dr. Zainab Imam, perinatal psychiatrist; Phelister Abdalla, the National Coordinator of the Kenya Sex Workers Alliance (KESWA); Xanthe Scharff (@XantheScharff), CEO & Cofounder @FullerProject; Rania Zabaneh (@RZabaneh), Al Jazeera producer in the occupied West Bank.
