COVID pandemic and its effect on Manipuri women

Naorem Sujata Devi and Sonia Meitram


When the entire Nation was hit by the pandemic and the lockdown was imposed, people were asked to stay at home but they were not told how to deal with the issue. Knowingly and unknowingly all of us were getting affected by the sudden lockdown. The more difficult part is dealing with a pandemic is the fear and panic it brings along with the virus.

 

The crisis of food shortages rose and economic crisis followed. Whatever the problem it may be, we come to know it was/is never gender-neutral. Pandemic or no-pandemic it is the women that are affected the most. As we can see from the reports of most of the organizations and health departments COVID-19 issue will have a long-lasting effect to all of us socially, culturally, economically, politically etc.
