Violence Against Women During COVID

More and more stories are coming out about the violence against women during COVID. This blog will serve links to these stories so we can see just how pervasive this problem truly is.

Because of the pandemic, more women have been laid off and stuck at home with nowhere to go. That means that many are stuck at home with their abusers. “The home” is one part of the “trifecta of misogyny,” which is a term that feminist Mona Eltahawy coined. The trifecta of misogyny explains that “the state, the street and the home” work together to oppress women while at the center of the trifecta is patriarchy (Eltahawy, 2019).
