Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has been the highlight of the year 2020, creating ripples of strife and tribulation across sectors and society. It is not just a global health challenge. However, it has since caused nations to go into recession, thereby disrupting lives across the globe. Although everyone, big and small, feels the adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, women are the most affected. Everywhere, cases of domestic violence are radically increasing. The present paper aims to explore a vast range of literature concerning historical pandemics to observe methodologies for combating those pandemics while uncovering patterns of impacts created by the pandemics, especially in increasing diverse violent incidents. The articles used for the present study were carefully analysed, and five principal pathways subsequently developed for connecting violence against women and pandemics directly and indirectly. Through evidence collected from the study, recommendations were created to help civil society organizations, community-based agencies, international donor facilities, and governments. This will provide appropriate measures and interventions, especially for women and children, to combat gender-based violence adequately alongside preparing for possible future pandemics adequately.
