Assessment of COVID-19’s Impact on Women Employed as Domestic Workers in Georgia

Domestic workers as a group were largely invisible and undervalued before the Covid-19 pandemic; however, the pandemic highlighted their vulnerability and made their work even more unreliable and precarious. Assessment of COVID-19’s Impact on Women Employed as Domestic Workers in Georgia presents in-depth qualitative study findings on the impact of the pandemic on the lives of women domestic workers, highlights their challenges and needs and provides evidence-based recommendations to policymakers and practitioners.

The publication was prepared by WeResearch in the framework of the project “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus”, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC).
