DLSU-AKI Working Paper Series 2021-08-067 : The Effect of Lockdowns on the Status of Women in the World

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious respiratory illness that causes moderate to severe symptoms that can be fatal to older people or those with other underlying health concerns. Considered a global pandemic, this disease spreads rapidly across the world, calling for a need for the implementation of lockdowns. This study examines the effects of lockdowns on joblessness among women, controlling for household conditions, namely, perceived household responsibility, hours allotted for household chores, and safety at home. Data for lockdowns were sourced from Google’s Community Mobility reports, whereas joblessness among women and household conditions were sourced from Facebook’s Survey on Gender Equality at Home. The findings suggest that lockdowns positively and significantly affect joblessness among women and that household conditions (hours allotted for household chores and safety at home) also have the same effect, except for perceived household responsibility. The implications of these results are discussed in detail throughout the study.
