Has Covid-19 turned the clock back on women's equality? – podcast
Women seem to be bearing the brunt of the economic fallout and taking on a greater share of domestic work and childcare. Guardian columnist Gaby Hinsliff looks at whether the virus has meant a huge step back for women’s rightsMen have paid disproportionately with their lives during this pandemic, yet it’s women, Gaby Hinsliff tells Anushka Asthana, who seem to be bearing the brunt of the economic fallout. Women working from home are also shouldering more of the housework and childcare than men, according to research from the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), while young women were hardest hit by redundancies early on, when female-dominated sectors such as retail, hotels and hairdressing salons shut overnight. Gaby says she worries it is turning back the clock on the huge strides forward that women have made over the past few decades. Anushka also talks to Georgie, a paramedic who was pregnant when Covid-19 hit. She had all her shifts cancelled as a result of pregnancy discrimination, and is now taking her agency to a tribunal. She describes the enormous impact that it had on her mental health and her pregnancy. Continue reading...News, sport and opinion from the...

Gone to pot: New Zealand cools on legalising cannabis
With a crowded election cycle, non-committal politicians and a pandemic to worry about, public support for a yes vote in the referendum is eroding It is believed to be the first country in the world to put the legalisation of recreational cannabis to a national public vote. But amid a pandemic, an election concentrated almost entirely on the Covid-19 crisis, and a simultaneous vote on euthanasia, New Zealand’s upcoming marijuana referendum has not captivated the mainstream public attention that it might have in an ordinary year.New Zealand would join Canada and Uruguay on the list of countries legalising the sale and use of cannabis for adults if more than half of voters approved it – but public backing for the measure has eroded in polling during 2020, reversing growing support in recent years. In a debate plagued by claims of misinformation from both sides – and taking place during an overcrowded election cycle – some politicians have shied away from the matter altogether, fearing they will end up on the wrong side of a divisive topic.
