The COVID – 19 outbreak has had a disproportionate impact upon all women. Being the primary caregivers at home, they are the most susceptible to the threat. In addition, many health professionals including nurses are women and they have to serve in harsh conditions. Recent research also shows that women are way more vulnerable to the pandemic. This is not just in health terms. The virus affects jobs in the unorganized sectors in a major way. Women make up a chunk of the workforce there. Hence, they are also looking at a severe job crisis. We have some quotes to get all these beautiful and strong women through these tough and challenging times.
WHAT ARE THE QUOTES WOMEN NEED TO LISTEN TO?
“It is always wise to remember that others will survive even if we are not there taking care of them. I found out that I feel so much better when I take an hour a day, just to take care of me and love myself. It keeps me from feeling so put upon by everything and everybody, and helps me get through the day. By taking my hour early in the morning, I feel like I get my love first and I get it when I am at my best.” – Byllye Avery, health care activist
“Women’s health needs to be front and centre – it often isn’t, but it needs to be.” – Cynthia Nixon, actress and activist
“Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we are scurrying to and fro appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.” – Michelle Obama, former First Lady of the United States of America
“Give yourself the same care and attention that you give to others and watch yourself bloom.” – Anonymous
