Message from the editorial board (2020)
AuthorsKohli, Ambikashow all
We are so glad to see our journal turning 6-year-old this year. However, the year has been challenging for the whole world, COVID-19 being at the forefront. Many people lost their lives across the world because of the novel pandemic. Pandemic has not only raised health issues and have exposed our vulnerable health systems, but have also raised several social and economic challenges. Gender issues emerged during lockdown affecting women’s lives cannot be undermined. Women’s lives got severely affected by lockdown such as increased burdens of domestic care towards their families, increased domestic violence cases, difficulty in accessing support services, lost income, and lost opportunity for education are some of the challenges faced by them. We hope to get everything normal as soon as possible. Happy reading, everyone!
