NU Women are pleased to present Alison Andrew as the speaker for this year's NU Women Annual Lecture.

This lecture will use new survey data to explore how parents in England have been sharing paid work and domestic work during lockdown. It will examine how the gender inequalities in the division of work within heterosexual couples have changed relative to before the pandemic and what this might mean for women's careers in the post-pandemic world.

Alison is a Senior Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Her research examines the origins of socio-economic and gender inequalities, especially focusing on the roles of childhood, adolescence, marriage and parenthood.
