Reducing the gendered impact of outbreak policies: 6 new factsheets

Sep 8, 2022 | Blog, News

How have the policy responses to Covid-19 increased gender inequalities? What can policymakers, employers or even civil society organisations do to mitigate the impact of outbreak policies?  

Following its second research cycle, RESISTIRÉ is releasing a new set of 6 factsheets to support policymakers, advisers, employers, and civil society organisations in understanding the social, economic, political, and environmental effects of Covid-19 policy responses on gender equality, and to suggest practical recommendations to mitigate these effects. These recommendations can also serve to safeguard against the societal impacts of future crises.

Recommendations issued from this second research cycle focus on crisis management, national recovery and resilience plans, gender-based violence, digital violence, and education.
