The global COVID-19 crisis directly affects more women than men in some of the most heavily impacted industries. In the U.S., 76% of all healthcare jobs are held by women, and more than 85% of nurses in the field are women, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Other industries altered by the crisis, such as hospitality, restaurants, retail, education, and paid care work, skew predominantly female.
