COVID 19 pandemic has created a toil on the mental and physical health of people all over the world. It has put enormous burden on the economic, social and occupational functioning of the people. Media often throws light on the suffering of the frontline warriors like doctors, nurses and the police. But the mental suffering of the actual warriors in every front, the females is quite a forgotten issue. This is an attempt to throw light on the mental suffering and coping strategies by women during this crisis.

Women are prone for depression and suicide and this COVID 19 pandemic was found to kindle PTSD symptoms more in females [1]. In low and middle income countries. Women also showed an anxiety risk that was 3.01 times higher than males in a study during the current COVID-19 pandemic in China [2]. Food insecurity during the pandemic was found to have a correlation between adverse mental health [3]. Research shows that special population of women like pregnant ladies were also adversely affected due to food scarcity during the pandemic paving way to adversities like anxiety as well as poor fetal outcomes [4].
