There have been many claims that Working from Home (WFH) will spearhead a feminist revolution, likening the change in our work environment to the structural changes we saw for working women during and after WW1.

These sorts of claims elicit many questions;

🔸Is this a positive change?

🔸Does WFH finally give women the flexibility we have been fighting for?

🔸How do we navigate WFH when our own home is not safe?

🔸What about work, health and safety? What about the costs of running a home office?

🔸Will WFH be optional in the future? Should it be? Will more time in the home, increase our care work?

🔸What types of workers get to WFH? Do you have to let your employer into your home? Will work hours increase? What on earth are we doing about childcare?

There are no simple answers, and as always it depends; not every person has the opportunity to WFH or experiences WFH equally. Can we re-imagine work, so that is works for us?

To keep this conversation going and maybe answer some of these questions, the Working Women’s Centre SA Inc is proud to host:

Working from Home: Risks and Rewards: An online panel conversation about gender and labour, while working from & in the home.
