Bangkok, La Paz, Nairobi, Jun 19 (EFE).-Although the coronavirus pandemic has killed more men it is women who are the most vulnerable to its social and economic effects, from single mothers in Thailand to domestic abuse victims in Kenya.
Women often take on the role of caregivers for children, the elderly and the sick, and during lockdown many have not only lost their jobs but have been exposed to domestic violence as well as a widening gap of systematic inequality, especially in the poorest countries.
UN Women warns in a report on the effects of Covid-19 that women do an average of 4.1 hours a day of unpaid work, such as housework or caring for dependents – triple that of men.
