Abstract

This research deals with the effect of the coronavirus outbreak on inequality within and between families in Israel. We ask to what extent employment patterns and unpaid work within the household have changed in light of the pandemic outbreak. Moreover, we seek to examine whether these changes are related to one another. To answer these questions, we used the first wave of a longitudinal survey of adult Israeli men and women who were employed or self-employed in the first week of March, prior to the outbreak of the pandemic. We examine paid and unpaid work patterns before the first lockdown, at the beginning of March, and again at the end of April, during the first lockdown. Our main argument is that women were doubly disadvantaged as a result of the economic crisis. Supporting our argument, we find at the end of April, after the economy was shut down but before it was reopened, there was an increase in gender inequality in the labor market alongside an increase in gender inequality within the household.
