Why the Coronavirus is a Disaster for Feminism

March 26, 2020

Is the coronavirus a disaster for feminism? As we are all being hit hard by this pandemic- it’s bringing up the gaps in our system as well as very clear inequalities. Journalist and author, Liz Plank, joins Shira and Ryan to discuss how the way we look at feminism is going to change. She says we are seeing the virus killing more men than women and with that we are seeing gender norms come to light. She says that things we usually close are eyes to are really surfacing right now. Liz tweeted "Has #COVID19 forced the men in your lives/family to take more or less responsibility in the home?" which caused a lot of controversy.
