Visible Women with Caroline Criado Perez


2.4 The day the women went on strike

Season 2, Ep. 4

In October 1975, the women of Iceland took a 'day off', leading to national chaos. It highlighted the importance of women’s roles in the economy, of which unpaid care work - cooking, cleaning, caring for family - is a vital part. In this episode, Caroline asks whether the Covid pandemic could be the shock we need to finally fix perhaps the greatest gender data gap of all.
