Lockdown policies have effectively eliminated the barriers between work, home, and school that not only most of us, but social science itself is used to. Researchers in economics have been studying how the division of family responsibilities for childcare, housework and home schooling has responded: who is doing more and what are they doing? What is the role of health and labour market status, childcare and homeschooling needs and previous patterns of division of labour in determining reported changes? What tensions has this created and is there potential for a more equal allocation within households in the future?
