Domestic violence affects people of all ages and backgrounds. It safeguards everyone who is at risk. This article, which focuses on one of these vulnerable groups, is about women and children. The escalation of 19 COVID cases in the United States has exacerbated the already awful situation of domestic violence victims. Quarantine had a negative impact on the company, the economy, and people’s mental health. In India, women’s violence has long been considered a severe issue. On the other side, the sickness has been discovered to exacerbate the precarious status of women in households. According to government statistics, 1-3 out of every 10 women aged 15 to 49 had been sexually abused. This is an egregious infringement of basic human rights. The goal of this research is to figure out what’s causing these severe repercussions, especially during an epidemic. Legislation pertaining to women’s rights has been explored. In addition, the impact was more precisely assessed, and a comparative study in other countries was carried out. The WHO study on the present topic also takes a comprehensive look at the issue. The paper also strives to recommend solutions to improve women’s lives in these difficult times.
