There have been a number of articles recently (such as this by STAT), covering research that shows the number of papers published by women has dropped during the pandemic.
One issue is that women are often faced with more caring responsibilities, such as for children, and with schools closed they do not have the time to concentrate on looking after their children and getting their research done. And for those who are single mothers or a member of a minority, it is even tougher.
Is there anything that can be done to support women in this situation? And are you a woman finding your career affected by extra responsibilities during the pandemic?
