The COVID-19 pandemic has overturned the lives of almost every single person of the world. It has led us to completely change the way we function in our daily routine and more.

The whole wake up, go to office or college, stay there for a certain amount of time and come back home was suddenly out the window. Because of the extremely contagious nature of coronavirus, offices, schools, colleges and all were shut down.

Suddenly now any and all work from being done solely from a virtual medium, work from home became one of the buzz words of last year even.

But it seems like everything, a certain bit of sexism and gender inequality started to creep into this area too. Recently, a Twitter user shared a story of how his sister had to listen to her boss’s complaints that she was not working constantly like her male colleagues.

What Happened?

On 13th January Twitter user Karan Tripathi (@TripathiGee) shared on his page a thread of what his sister had experienced in her work life.

Tripathi’s sister, the only female data scientist in her team was given a telling to by her boss who told her to learn from her male colleagues and how they are constantly working.

Stating that the males never switch off their work stations, the boss was apparently calling her out for being unable to match her male workers.

Tripathi further wrote on how “The WFH culture has invisibilised the gendered struggles of navigating personal and professional life. Offices are becoming ignorant towards the disproportionate burden of WFH on women, who manage work alongside expectations of being the primary performer of domestic duties.”
