The children’s book, which looks at the underlying biases that make ambition a gender-specific feat, made me think of how the pandemic has altered our relationship with it. In ‘Ambition in the time of a pandemic’, Nisha Susan argues how COVID-19 presented a new set of challenges to women in the workforce. The drastic turn, where many women were pushed out of paying jobs to take on domestic duties and hours of unpaid work, is the unequal cost of the pandemic—distributed world over.
