HEINZELMANN, Fernanda Lyrio; COELHO, Lina; LOPES, Mónica  e  VIEIRA, Cristina C.. COVID-19 Impacts for Portuguese Women's Lives: A Brief Thematic Analysis. NTQR [online]. 2021, vol.9, pp.320-326.  Epub 20-Dez-2021. ISSN 2184-7770.

Further knowledge on the worsening of gender disparities due to the COVID-19 pandemic motivated this article. The brief study described is part of a larger investigation aiming to find out how the crisis impacts the lives of women and their families, in terms of employment, income and living conditions. The method used is a thematic analysis of an inductive approach applied to responses given by 334 women, residing in Portugal, to two open-ended questions included in the major research survey, still ongoing. Responses were collected between October 2020 and January 2021. Eight categories of analysis were identified: home office, return to work, unpaid work, lack, home, confinement, illness, and mental health. Those were associated with three major themes that guide the study: work, income and living conditions. The themes and analysis’ categories are interlinked and present a general picture of the actual situation of women. In general, it was noticed financial, physical and mental exhaustion of women relating to all the areas addressed. Worldwide uncertainty about the future seems to aggravate the situation. That is a situation overburdening women, which requires greater attention to the female population by the policies adopted to fight both the pandemic and its social and economic consequences.
