July 14, 2020. 4pm. Webinar. The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Women & GIrls


“The impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Women & Girls”

IPS is pleased to remind you about the webinar taking place tomorrow, 14 July 2020 at 15:00 CSET on Zoom.

What's needed to ensure that policymakers and decision makers put women and young girls first?

The world is counting the cost of COVID-19. It has affected everyone, everywhere and it threatens to undo the gains in recent years for women and young girls. It is estimated that nearly 60% of women around the world work in the informal economy, earning less, saving less, and at higher risk of falling into poverty. Many of the elderly are women, a population vulnerable to the ravages of the pandemic. Many young girls have been forced out of school – and may not return. With its massive months-long lockdowns, the crisis has created vulnerabilities for women to domestic, sexual violence and gender-based violence.

Program July 14, 2020, at 15:00 CSET.

The online event will be broadcast via Zoom. To access the webinar: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/77713771746
