COVID-19 Impacts on Livelihoods of Women and Men in the Kyrgyz Republic
It is clear that the pandemic has differently impacted women and men around the globe, restricting their economic empowerment and deepening gender inequality and genderbased violence. This is first of all due to the loss of income sources, including among women entrepreneurs who traditionally work in service industries, higher risks for women working in healthcare, social protection and education systems, and increased domestic workloads as a result of self-isolation. In Kyrgyzstan, this situation has its own specifics due to the country’s geographic location and economic dependence on the neighboring countries related to high labor outmigration. The results of GRA in Kyrgyzstan show that women, particularly from vulnerable groups facing multiple discrimination, have suffered more from the crisis than men.
