Impact of Covid-19 lockdown on the economic prospects of working women in India: A review
Ms. Arpee Saikia
The year 2020 had started on a positive note for this year marked the 110 years of celebrating the International Women’s Day. This is also the 25th year of Beijing Platform Action which was designed to bring about monumental outcomes for the mission of achieving gender equality. Instead, the world is grappling with a pandemic which has slowed down and infact impaired the mission of achieving gender equality across several platforms such as education, nutrition, social and economic status. If the reports and statistics across the globe are considered, the Covid -19 pandemic has single handedly taken us decades behind in terms of gender equality and justice. Women face increased financial instability and threat to their means of livelihood as a result of the current situation. Women, who constitute around 50 percent of the Indian population have remained largely absent from the government’s Covid-19 policy. This paper makes an attempt to study the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on the economic status and prospects of the working women in India across various social and economic strata.
