On Wednesday the 18th of November, 2020, Anne Boring was auditioned as part of the information mission on economic and professional equality conducted by the Delegation for Women's Rights of the French National Assembly.

During the first lockdown, women reported spending more time on household chores and childcare than men. Two of the reasons for this difference are that:
- More women are affected by the reduction of working hours than men, especially for childcare.
- More women worked from home than men because of the occupations they hold.
- Access to financing
The unequal access to financing (from investors) between women and men entrepreneurs is a major reason why there are fewer women in entrepreneurship. Anne Boring, Director of the Women in Business Chair at Sciences Po, explains the different mechanisms which can lead to a significant funding gap in entrepreneurship.
- The glass ceiling
We now turn to the question of the "glass ceiling": what exactly does this term mean? How can it be broken? In this datavideo "Le Lab' " Anne Boring, Director of the Women in Business Chair at Sciences Po, explains why the higher you go up in the corporate hierarchy, the fewer women there are.
- Choosing your higher education
Gender inequalities start with the choice of higher education. Female and male students make different choices in terms of higher education. These imbalances have consequences on the labor market in terms of salary, position, and quality of employment. In this video, Anne Boring explains these differences in choices which begin with different choices of univerisities, fields, and specializations.
- Work inequalities
Gender inequalities in the labor market have declined over the past 50 years. But since the 2000s this reduction in inequality has stopped. Today, on average, women earn 17% less than men. Why do women earn less than men? In this video, Anne Boring explains the persistent inequalities in the labor market.
