Method: This is a narrative review through the search for articles in scientific databases, published from January 2020 to October 2021. Five complete original articles were selected that answer the central question of the research and were organized according to the content of their evidence, divided into three categories: 1) The work of riverside women in the context of COVID-19; 2) The impact of work on the health of riparian women in the face of the pandemic; 3) Vulnerabilities of riverine women and coping strategies in the pandemic. Results: The analysis of the literature highlights important points in the sense of alerting society to the vulnerabilities to which women are exposed due to the social isolation imposed by the pandemic, such as the loss of income with a direct impact on the families' food and quality of life, violence domestic, mental disorders, among others.
