How Covid-19 Impacts Women and Girls In a Nutshell
17 June 2020
UN Women have published a fantastic resource for anyone seeking to understand or explain why Covid-19 impacts women and girls in gender specific ways. The 'Explainer' article looks at why in times of crisis, when resources are strained and institutional capacity is limited, women and girls face disproportionate impacts with far reaching consequences that are only further amplified in contexts of fragility, conflict, and emergencies.
Hard-fought gains for women’s rights are also under threat. Responding to the pandemic is not just about rectifying long-standing inequalities, but also about building a resilient world in the interest of everyone with women at the centre of recovery. The resources compiled in the UN Women Explainer allow you to explore these varied impacts and take a quiz to test your knowledge.
