Today is International Women’s Day, a day celebrated around the world to focus on women’s rights. The 2021 theme is #choosetochallenge. Click here for more information on how to support the movement and get involved.
Women are struggling hard in the pandemic. Nannies have been a vital part in supporting families, especially mothers.
Physically, women have been postponing checkups and health screenings due to lack of childcare, doctors’ offices being overbooked, or fear of COVID exposure.
Professionally, more women have lost their jobs than men have. They are also “choosing” to leave the workforce in high numbers to keep up with virtual learning and to deal with daycares/schools being closed.
Mentally, women are overburdened with working, managing the home, teaching children, caring for parents, etc.
While we realize and appreciate the struggles women are suffering and the sacrifices they are making, we encourage you to seek support and to take care of yourselves. Self care is not selfish!
