During this time of crisis, it's been amazing to see everyone coming together to support each other against COVID-19. But, of course, there are still those who are sowing the seeds of conflict — and feminists seem to be at the forefront.
I recently came across an article in The Atlantic titled, “The Coronavirus Is A Disaster for Feminism.” Written by Helen Lewis, a London-based staff writer for the publication, the piece argues that women are the real victims of this pandemic.
Devoting one single line to the fact that men are dying at higher rates than women (“Purely as a physical illness, the coronavirus appears to affect women less severely”), and barely accepting that as true, the rest of the article continues to say that women are essentially going to have to return to traditional gender roles, as well as lose out on healthcare because resources are being directed elsewhere.
