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 worked from home than men because of the occupations they hold.

- "Elle active" forum with L'Oréal Paris
On Friday the 9th of October, 2020, Anne Boring participated in the ninth edition of the ELLE Active forum to address the subject of unconscious biases (linked to stereotypes, negative prejudices and preconceived ideas) that can generate discrimination. "We are used to associate men with scientific fields of study and women with the humanities, which can strongly influence the behavior of young women when they choose their career tracks, for example. If they think they can't succeed, they won't make the effort that would enable them to succeed," explains Anne Boring.
