I think it hampers all people, not just one particular demographic.

I don't see anything in this article that justifies the emphasis on "young women" in the headline. Quite clearly if remote working is adversely affecting young women living at home, then it must also be adversely affecting young men also, who are presumably living at home in equal numbers, and under equally difficult conditions.

Which is a shame, because the article actually raises some worthwhile points.

@BigYen One example proves the hypothesis usually here. If it were about men, what will never happen of course, you would have to bring a minimum of 101% to be counted as slightly affected. lol

Remote work has seen an uptick in Japan, but mainly in cities and only with some companies. It’s certainly not as widespread as in some other countries. Are Japanese workers similarly affected? We’ll never know.
