Daily: WFH or WTF? Where women lose out from flexible working

COVID has transformed the way we work. But not everyone’s a winner, especially women, with many in jobs that make working from home is impossible, undertaking twice as much unpaid overtime, or being pushed back into the office at risk of potential pay cuts. So what can be done to support working women? Naomi Smith talks to Maya Jeyabraba and Rose Lasko-Skinner from DEMOS, who have just published Distanced Revolution, a report all about how COVID caused a revolution in home working - and what needs to happen next.


  • “Lots of people were excited about the flexibility without recognising the risks of working from home.” - Rose Lasko-Skinner
  • “Flexible working can help with levelling up. But that too needs a legislative framework.” - Rose Lasko-Skinner
  • “Even before the pandemic, women were taking on the second shift at home.” - Maya Jeyabraba


Presented by Naomi Smith. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production
