Speakers

Paula Fyans
Paula Fyans has experienced first-hand what it is like managing The Invisible Job from the perspective of a working mother with an international career (in Pharma and university). When she gave up her job to restore balance to family life, she learned about life as a full-time parent. The grass is no greener; instead it just presents a different set of challenges. The book features insights from many interviews she has conducted with women about their personal experiences of managing parental and home responsibilities, either full-time or on top of a career. Drawing on her scientific background, it also features extensive demographic, economic and gender-based global research into how responsibility for parenting and running a home is shared by couples and the way an imbalance in this role impacts women. Paula has lived and worked in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Germany, France, Malawi and South Africa. In addition to gender equality she is also a passionate advocate for climate justice
