The discovery of contraception in a pill freed American women from more than being the person responsible for the family size. They burned their bras and marched in protests as equals to the men. Career women emerged to shape their own worlds, but President. Barack Obama pointed out in a tweet that there continues to be a problem.
He tweeted about how the CONVID-19 pandemic magnified “racial disparities,” the financial security of too many,” and the “imbalanced burdens on working moms.” He gave Americans a moment’s rest from their coronavirus worries by getting their situations.
He also pointed out that there will be many opportunities emerging as people, especially women, need to change their lives in order to deal with the coronavirus. He tweeted:
‘The pandemic has magnified the financial insecurity of too many American families, the deep and real racial disparities in our society – and the imbalanced burdens on working moms. We have to create something better for America on the other side of this.’
Private psychotherapist and mother of two daughters aged four and one, Saba Luri realized a given in her family: homemaker duty would fall on her shoulders. As a result, the bathroom became her “emergency office,” according to The New York Times:
‘It’s the one place I can close the door and lock it.’
All of a sudden, she had to squeeze her work of managing a practice built over years, in and around her other responsibilities:
‘The responsibility to deal is on me. What I am hearing is that we as women are going to be the ones to set boundaries or establish a plan.’
Political Director for the San Diego Chapter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical workers Gretchen Newsom burst into tears when Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) left the 2020 presidential race. During the coronavirus pandemic, she has continued to hold her round-the-clock job and parenting. Plus she morphed into an instant teacher.
Change is not easy, but when people must their lives become many times enriched. Thanks Obama.
