Abstract
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has revealed inequalities between men and women and has deepened some existing disparities. While in Switzerland, more women than men have been infected, men have been at greater risk of developing complications and dying. A weaker immune response and more co-morbidities help to explain this poorer prognosis. Socially and economically, women have become more precarious as a result of less stable employment and greater involvement in domestic work. Domestic violence has increased and women's access to sexual and reproductive health services has become more difficult. Finally, women have been under-represented as research authors but also among experts in task forces and media.
