Why Women's Voices Must Be at the Center of Rebuilding After COVID-19

Извор: WUNRN – 23.01.2021

By Melinda Gates - Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, founder of Pivotal Ventures, & author of The Moment of Lift.

JANUARY 15, 2021 - Right around this time last year, many of us at the Gates Foundation were starting to worry that the public health crisis emerging in Wuhan would soon be felt everywhere we work. With each passing week, it was becoming clearer that the new coronavirus was unlikely to be contained and a once-in-a-century pandemic was looming. While the world didn’t know much about COVID-19 yet, I was certain of one thing: a pandemic would lead to devastating setbacks for women everywhere.


Informal Women Workers Call for Social Protection Amidst COVID-19

Извор: WUNRN – 22.01.2021

The analysis of the social protection responses to the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light two key lessons: the first is the need for an approach flexible enough to recognize the multiple needs and dimensions of informal workers’ lives. The second is the importance of having systems, institutions and spaces of social dialogue in place that are not only robust enough to support current beneficiaries, but to step up to the plate when unforeseen shocks occur.

Cyber Violence in Intimate Relationships

Извор: WUNRN – 21.12.2020

By using cyber violence, abusive men

- seem omnipotent and omnipresent to their partner,

- control every aspect of their partner’s life,

- have constant access to their victims,

- make it increasingly difficult for survivors to leave the abuse behind,

- continue abusing their victims after the end of the relationship, and

- ruin victims’ livelihoods, reputations and steal their sense of safety.

Human Rights & Gender Equality during Public Emergencies as the COVID-19 Pandemic

Извор: WUNRN – 08.12.2020

When emergency measures and #humanrights restrictions are gender-blind, women end up being harmed the most. ODIHR's new guide helps fill these gaps and prevent further discrimination.

In crisis situations, pre-existing patterns of discrimination, marginalization and vulnerability are exacerbated. Women and men, girls and boys experience the effects of the crisis itself, and of the extraordinary measures taken to counter it, in very different ways. Natural disasters, such as the devastating tsunamis, hurricanes and earthquakes of the past decade, have shown that women are at much higher risk of death from the immediate event, and also that their economic vulnerability increases in the aftermath.2 Distribution of relief aid often fails to consider gender differences, denying women access to key resources.
