Abstract: Following the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lock downs leading to the closure of schools and other forms of institutional support, the workload of the working mothers has been amplified owing to the persistence of traditional gender roles and with the blurring of the private-public sphere division. This has been reflected more in the life of the women in the teaching profession who had to realign themselves to learn new technologies to facilitate remote teaching and learning while simultaneously doing childcare and other domestic chores. The present paper is based on a study of the women teachers in Sikkim and their life during the Covid-19 lockdown. The participants in the study were identified through the snowball sampling. The qualitative data has been collected through in-depth interviews with 16 mothers engaged in the teaching profession in Sikkim.
