Working Women Are Amongst The Most Affected By Pandemic: Do Structural Policy Changes Could Reduce This Effect?

How working women has overwhelmed and affected by too many responsibilities due to the pandemic?



The Covid-19 has been affecting our livelihoods for over a year now, and if we look back at the harm the pandemic has wrought on women's employment trends is immeasurable. A primary caretaker woman's duty has been particularly hard hit, with all the added everyday responsibilities and a bunch of unusual challenges to their work/life arrangements.

Survey says, Working women and mothers are undergoing a difficult time of stress due to Too Much Workload at Home and Workplace in this Pandemic.

Around 400 working women were surveyed across different countries to provide a snapshot of how this global pandemic has impacted them. The pandemic is upending the work/life balance for many working women while affecting their physical and mental health. Most women are questioning their present, short-term, and long-term career prospects. Many women have even cited working longer hours because of the pandemic, and others are juggling extra care giving responsibilities due to pandemic-related consequences while also working full-time.

The circumstances under which women work and live have changed drastically since the pandemic's onset, including where they work.

  • Over 65% of women now have added responsibility for household chores
  • 1/3 said their workloads have increased due to the pandemic
  • 58% of those with children reported added childcare responsibilities
  • 53% of those with children reported home-schooling/ education responsibilities
  • 46% reported feeling a need to always be available from a work perspective
  • 48% said their physical well-being has suffered as an impact of feeling they always need to be available

Effect of Covid-19 on Women's Present and Future Employment

All of the above factors will have a significant adverse effect on women's employment, which will, in turn, have a negative impact not only on both present and future earnings but also on retirement security and gender neutrality in workplaces and homes.

The COVID-19 recession is different from earlier economic downturns we've experienced so far and will require distinctive solutions than traditional restoration responses. Women and their families urgently need bold, structural policy changes that prioritize their economic security to ensure a broad and deep recovery. To create a gender-equitable recovery, Lawmakers must pass immediate COVID-19 relief and effective, permanent policies outlined above to support women's work and care giving in the long term.
