It's not a #covid #recession, it's a #shecession. Thread up, baby --- >
A majority of the jobs lost in the early stages of COVID were held by women, especially in industries like hospitality. As a result, the term “she-cession” was coined. I think we all intuitively realize that COVID was going to be worse for women overall, and
especially working moms — and then most school districts went to a confusing mix of virtual and hybrid in-person, which made it doubly hard for moms of school-aged children, who normally bear that burden. Here’s something from Wharton about this whole topic,

What did you gain?

It's a simple question that I want to ask media houses that thought - and are still thinking - it's a good practice to terminate employees on the spot. The editor, board, management & HR all are collectively responsible but no one would reply.
Who will question the media, which prides itself in the power of questioning it has. Frankly, it doesn't matter if you say in private that I'm sorry and this shouldn't have happened. The fact remains it happened and it happened under your watch.
Were these the morals, ethics & values that the organisation was built on? Didn't you feel proud when the reporters brought you a story that revealed the unethical practices at various establishments, most notably the government! You would have put it on the front page too!

Two principle emotions are said to drive people's actions.

Love and fear are the strongest and of our emotions. They set the stage for how we react to new experiences. Who we become is from those experiences, which is most of our childhood. Emotions are how we develop as people.
The anxiety of knowing as a black person, a trip to the store, a jog, or simply coming home can lead to the untimely departure from your family... your place here on this Earth. This sits heavy on my heart.
I've known these emotions all my life. I've had to fear racism and racist acts. I've lived through the fear of death. But, I've also had the joy of seeing family and friends laugh together and the love of going to a crab feast. Anyone who knows me knows I love a good crab feast.
