The COVID-19 pandemic has been a major focus of international relations and many organisations for sometime now. However, the impacts and consequences for women are starting to become apparent while already existing symptoms of gender inequality have been further exacerbated. Whether it is a surge in domestic violence, increases in the gender pay gap or increases in unpaid care work, progress risks being undone if the COVID-19 impacts on women go unchecked.
It is with this in mind that the World Humanitarian Forum wants to encourage a cross-sector, multidisciplinary dialogue in order to analyse the COVID-19 impacts on women, how current gender inequality issues have worsened and how the international community can ensure women remain empowered even in these unprecedented times.
