The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown measures have had a profound impact on individuals and societies worldwide. In Jordan, the government implemented a national lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19, which significantly affected the lifestyle of Jordanians. This study aimed to assess the perceptions of female employees at Al alBayt University (AABU) and Yarmouk University (YU) regarding Covid-19 and the lockdown. The study utilized a quantitative approach, with a sample of female employees from both universities voluntarily participating in a 25-item online questionnaire (N=142). The questionnaire explored their perceptions of Covid-19 and the lockdown, and data analysis was conducted using a 2-university location (AABU and YU) x 3-marital status (single, married, and previously married) x 3-age group (< 25- 35, 36- 45, and 46 >), and 2-dwellings (city and village) t-test and ANOVA. The data analysis revealed significant main effects of Covid-19 on women’s lives, including socioeconomic and linguistic impacts.
