Given what many scholars have described as a gendered pandemic, COVID-19 has been noted to worsen gender inequalities. More specifically, working mothers have been burdened with care duties, household chores and elderly care. That said, the experiences of men concerning work-family intersections amidst the pandemic has received far less attention. This study, therefore, sets out to investigate the experiences and challenges of 15 single fathers who have had to combine family and work duties during the pandemic in 2020. The study draws from boundary theory and gender role theory to illuminate how the gendered pandemic focused on women may not provide a fuller picture of gendered pandemic.
