PANDEMIC, MATERNITY AND SCIENCE: EXPERIENCES AND REFLECTIONS OF MOTHER SCIENTISTS AT THE FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF THE PAMPA
Keywords:Pandemic, Science, Women, maternity
The pandemic context has transformed the social reality and interpersonal relationships, mainly through the measures of isolation and social distancing, necessary for the con-tainment of the virus. With the remote work and the intensification of family life, the gen-der inequalities related to the sexual division of labor have been accentuated, which over-loads women due to the unequal responsibility for the care of private life. The present article, of an exploratory qualitative nature, aims, through the use of questionnaires, to investigate and discuss how the pandemic has affected the careers of scientist mothers, professors at the Federal University of the Pampa. We noticed, through the research, that the pandemic has impacted in some way the careers of the participants, starting with the lack of time for the fulfillment of professional activities, domestic and childcare, thus in-tensifying the work overload and the impacts on the mental health of some of the partici-pants of the study.
