At SheSpeaks, our thoughts are with all of those impacted by the Coronavirus. We are wishing the best of health to everyone in our community and beyond.
We wanted to understand how women are feeling about the Coronavirus, so we sent out two surveys last week to ask SheSpeaks members to share their thoughts.
Read on to find out what women had to say, and join our discussion here to tell us what you think.
Here's What We Learned
*In an effort to better understand how women are feeling about the impact of the Coronavirus, SheSpeaks asked women age 18+ across the US to share their thoughts and experiences related to the Coronavirus. Two separate surveys were fielded: 1) On March 9th-11th 2020 2) On March 13th-15th 2020.

Avoiding stores entirely is impossible. People will always need things like food and household items. This is especially true for me now that we have a new baby, and I didn't realize how fast you go through certain things!
Our perception of the coronavirus has changed so much in such a short time. I'm not sure that things will go back to normal, but we'll have a new normal once all this is over. We don't even know what "over" will look like.
I work for a supply chain so I am grateful to still be working throughout all this.
I am still working but when I go to clients' homes I am wearing gloves and masks.
I 'm still working at my office since working remotely is impossible for me.
Yes everything changed so quickly
the new normal
I took a stand at work and said I have to work remotely. There is no need for me to be around others if I don't have to. safety first!
This coronavirus perception has changed drastically within days!
