Abstract: "COVID-19 pandemic determined a number of changes and impacts on the population, internalized differently by women and men. Following the outbreak of the new virus and introduction of restrictive measures by the authorities of the Republic of Moldova, we noticed that the situation impacts differently men and women, both economically and socially. This is also determined by the different roles women and men play in the society and family. This analysis aims to identify the impact of the pandemic outbreak on women and men, highlighting their short- and long-term special needs, and also their response to the new challenges and changes in social and economic sectors. In particular, the analysis revises the impact of the crisis caused by the pandemic on gender roles, but also on women’s empowerment.The research was undertaken by the Centre ‘Partnership for Development’ (CPD), in partnership with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and funded by Sweden."
