The recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Tony McDade, news surrounding the October 2019 killing of Brianna Hill, and the horrifying way a white woman used her privilege to threaten Christian Cooper’s life in Central Park have sparked international protests against racism and police brutality in America.

According to the Resolution Foundation, women are more likely than men to be working in sectors that have shut down during the pandemic. Mothers are
