The Caucasus Resource Research Center illustrated this trend in research conducted around the parliamentary elections. Reviewing the comments on the Facebook pages of 491 majoritarian candidates from August 31 to November 21, 2020, CRRC found that women received 40 percent of the comments categorized as abusive, despite comprising only 22 percent of the monitored profiles. These comments often called for women to return to stereotypical gender roles of staying home and caring for children or attributed their success to personal or sexual relationships with prominent men. Women have also been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Women are most vulnerable to such shocks because of their role as primary caregivers and homemakers, their occupational segregation, their lack of labor protections and legal rights to assets, biased intra-household allocations, and prevailing social norms and behaviors.

With the oldest history of wine-making and a distinguished national cuisine, many cultural values of Georgia, including social interactions, revolve around eating and feasting (52–54).

The results of the present study on the links between immigration, acculturation and eating patterns can generate significant new insights.

The public’s sustained and extensive engagement with this campaign further illustrated that Georgian voters want to see more women in politics and it provided encouragement to existing and prospective women politicians. Length of residence, education, cultural distance and expectations were reported to be important factors in adjustment by various prominent acculturation researchers (71–73). Consistent with above evidence, in a present study, both length of residence and early relocation age have been correlated with higher levels of integration. Thus, regression analysis further showed that two strategies of acculturation, separation and marginalization — can be considered predictors of higher EDEQ scores on four out of five EDEQ subscales, with separation having strongest predicting value. The link between culture change and disordered eating has attracted researchers’ interest towards the end of the twentieth century as EDs started emerging in non-Western countries, including Eastern Europe, and among immigrant/minority populations (8, 26–29).
