Gender based violence, particularly violence against women increases during any form of crisis. COVID 19 has its vast share of impact in increasing gender-based violence in Bangladesh too. Especially, since lockdown and home-quarantine have become the new norms in the country, the women stuck with abusive partners or even in cyberspace are continually becoming victims of a patriarchal system. In light of this reality, this paper aims to address the increased vulnerability and scope of violence against women in both online and offline modalities while explaining COVID-19 as a shadow pandemic. The study uses qualitative research method where the results are presented through thematic analysis where the study found how COVID-19 is working as a facilitator of women’s vulnerability.
