According to a UN report, during the CoV pandemic, women worldwide perform about three times as much unpaid domestic and care work as men. According to the report, men worked an average of 1.7 hours per day in the household or caring for relatives, but women did so for 4.2 hours.

The difference is even greater in North Africa and West Asia, where women do seven times more unpaid work than men. According to the report, more unpaid work was done during the pandemic than before.

“No country has achieved equality”.
Moreover, in 2020 only 47 percent of women of working age had a job – compared to 74 percent of men. This difference has remained relatively constant since 1995.

Progress towards equal rights for women remains elusive, said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. “No country has achieved gender equality, and the Covid 19 crisis threatens to undermine what has been achieved to a limited extent.

According to the report, women are still clearly outnumbered at the decision-making level as well. Only 28 percent of managerial positions are held by women. In addition, only 18 percent of the companies surveyed had female managers.
