STREIT, Ana Carolina Silveira e Silva et al. Covid-19 pandemic: the female perspective on social isolation. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.2, pp. 197-210. ISSN 2177-093X.

The isolation resulting from the coronavirus (covid-19) brought several implications to the family, professional and social spheres, with an intense repercussion in daily life. Hence, this study aimed to understand the female perspective on social isolation experienced due to the covid-19 pandemic. The design was qualitative, descriptive exploratory and cross-sectional, carried out with female public workers from a federal university of southern Brazil. The data were collected by sociodemographic questionnaire and focus group, and the analysis pointed to four themes: a) (dis)adaptation to the new routine; b) "pressure cooker" at home; c) individuality and conjugality; and d) coping strategies. The results highlighted the aggravation of a known phenomenon: women's overload. Also, the challenges of adapting to the new routine were revealed, as well as the demands of the different roles played by women (mother, worker, housewife, wife) and the psychological exhaustion from the expectation of taking care of everything.

Palavras-chave : covid-19; social isolation; psychological exhaustion; women's roles.
