The Gender Observatory – COVID-19 and the Crisis (2nd Edition/June 2020)

This second edition features a number of quality pieces from new contributors exploring how the corona virus pandemic is impacting different groups of women and how these women are responding. This edition reinforces that the gendered impacts of the outbreak are real and serious, with women facing high rates of food insecurity and violence while bearing the burden of increased domestic work. The diverse contributions show that women-owned small businesses are weathering unprecedented challenges and violence prevention efforts are creatively pivoting online, while government, civil society, and development partners work to strengthen evidence-based responses.

Happy reading!
