Abstract

Interviews with working mothers juggling professional and personal overlap during the COVID 19 pandemic show that the existing social and institutional challenges and the gendered burdens that working mothers bore before the pandemic, have intensified during the work-from-home environment. Women interviewed shared stories about working policies, organizational trust, burdens of childcare and housework and their wish for a more authentic merging of their work and mothering identities.
