In this society most women have been allowed to work with the stipulation of maintaining and taking care of the house and the family first. They’ve always been asked to priortize their families before anyone or anything.
Before the pandemic everyone was doing great in their jobs but the pandemic has lead many to leave their jobs due to the increased responsibilities and household tasks. Also, work from home is not an easy task for every woman.
During the pandemic women have been levied upon with tons of responsibilities even more than before, most of them have to solely take care of the sanitation, health, and safety of their families. Cooking food, cleaning up the house, taking care of the children, spending time with the family is a great task to do along with their careers.
Hence, yes the pandemic has worsened the situation of women’s struggle to work along with taking care of the family.
