Abstract

Covid-19 has made unprecedented challenges to migrants especially women migrants who are one of the most vulnerable groups of this pandemic since most of the women migrants are working in the informal and social service sectors. Kerala is one of the highest numbers of women emigrating states in India. The focal point of this study is to find out both the social and economic problems faced by women emigrants from Kerala due to Covid-19. To find out these problems, primary data were collected from women emigrants from Neendoor panchayat in Kottayam district in Kerala through snowball sampling technique. Since the problems faced by women emigrants in Gulf and developed countries are not the same due to this pandemic, this study also examines this difference.
