Understanding the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on the vocations, education and health
The COVID-19 global pandemic has seen a raft of mitigation strategies imposed on populations globally during the years 2020 and 2021. The impact of such restrictions on the work, education and healthcare access of general populations has been well documented. Missing from this discourse, however, is a measure of how this has been experienced by women intimate partner violence victims and survivors.
The aim of this study is to utilise the Chronister and Lewer Scale to measure the impact of the global pandemic and mitigation strategies on women Intimate Partner Violence survivors’ work, education and healthcare access.
This study uses the Chronister and Lewer Scale designed by academics Professor Krista Chronister (University of Oregon) and Dr Kelly Lewer (University of Wollongong) specifically in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
