Pregnant Then Screwed is looking for a freelance content creator who will deliver 2 short videos per week to help PTS build our Tik Tok following. The videos will be entertaining, educational, and engaging. They will explore issues related to the motherhood penalty and feminism using the daily news agenda as a hook.

They will have an interest and a good understanding of the motherhood penalty and feminism.
