Project Description

The current COVID-19 crisis has deeply impacted women who have borne the brunt of disproportionate care burdens, disruptions in income and education, and poor access to health and other essential services. For women already living in poverty, the lockdown is an additional shock to their economic stability.

From immediate relief efforts to longer-term recovery strategies, all sectors of society – including government, businesses, and corporate leaders – need to invest in female economic empowerment to ease the unique, unfair, and unequal impacts on women.
