At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, women lost 60 percent more jobs than men. They also took back the traditional role of caring for children and elderly family members with working mothers age 25-55 losing six times more work hours than fathers each week because of family responsibilities. With lock-down orders, stay-at-home measures and the brunt of child-rearing responsibilities, women who own their own business have especially been impacted.
