A purpose and mission driven business; we will not rest until there is gender equality.
With improved maternity and paternity leave, things are thankfully beginning to move forward, but where it was once the ‘motherhood penalty’ it’s now becoming the ‘parenthood penalty’ – and this only risks losing all ground previously won.
When we talk about barriers to returning to work – and staying at work – we tend to talk about cost and logistics. One’s too high and the other’s too hard. Both assessments are correct. What we often neglect to address are the emotional barriers.
Only 21% *of women were able to return to work full time after having children. Returning to work at 4 days a week is a 20% pay cut. After their second child the trend was for it to be reduced further to just 3 days a week – a 40% pay cut.
The gender pay gap is no mystery.

What our clients say about us.
Peace + Riot is great for my pandemic baby who had deep-rooted separation anxiety – a place where we can both hang out.
I’m a performance artist who can’t afford childcare so until now all of my work has been done in nap times, after bedtime or in snatches of time.
Working out of home never seemed to work with my children. Here they are entertained, happy and I am more productive.
My family lives out of town. They would help if they could, but they can’t. Peace + Riot fills that childcare gap.
Being a member has meant I can combine my two favourite things of remote working and being a dad.
