Could the lockdown be affecting men and women differently?

A recently study suggests that one in three women are suffering from loneliness caused by the lockdown. The researchers are of the opinion that women could be feeling lonelier because of the demand to take care of both children and the domestic duties. While the number of educated and employed women is on the rise, their household responsibilities and involvements haven’t reduced. They are taking care of the kids and household chores more than their husbands/partners or other men in the family.
