The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated long-standing gender inequalities. It disproportionately affects women and our recovery plan must manage the impact of COVID-19 on women.
From health to the economy, security to social protection, preexisting inequalities have been greatly amplified on various levels: work, mental and physical health, childcare, violence against women, just to name a few.
Shelter Movers, along with speakers and entrepreneurs from all over the world, discussed productive solutions to COVID-19’s impact on women in a conversation hosted by Spark News.
On June 18th Spark News is hosting a live event that will highlight the challenges and solutions to reach gender equality and build stronger societies. Women, men, representatives of the civil society or public institutions, innovators or change makers, leading experts or renowned gender equality figures will also join forces during a 2-hour live broadcast and through a social media campaign #TowardsEquality.
