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, these impacts can be a shock to their economic stability overall. 

From immediate relief efforts to longer-term recovery strategies, all sectors of society, including, government, businesses and corporate leaders need to invest in local women’s economic empowerment and have a responsibility to ensure actions taken and support given is responsive to the unique and unequal impacts on women.
