Gender Violence: A Crisis Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

An opportunity to understand what Social Media conversations during the pandemic reveal about this type of violence.

Since the onset of COVID-19, violence against cis and trans girls and women has significantly risen. This has particularly been the case with domestic violence, as the lockdown imposed by governments to contain the virus put girls and women in violent households at risk by increasing exposure to their abusers. Additionally, lockdown restrictions made it more difficult to denounce these crimes, causing gender-based violence to be widely under-reported.

This has led feminist organizations, collectives and civilians to take to digital spaces to raise awareness of the violence experienced by cis and trans girls and women, as well as their efforts to challenge and eradicate it. Maven Road analyzed 8.6 million conversations in the US surrounding gender-based violence from March 2020 to October 2021 to understand what conversations during the pandemic reveal about this type of violence and its perpetrators.
