Join Coady Institute’s Sarika Sinha (Program Teaching Staff), Eileen Alma (Director, International Centre for Women’s Leadership), and guests for a free webinar, Covid-19 from an Intersectional Gendered Perspective: Looking Beyond the Obvious.
This webinar proposes to delve into the impact of Covid-19 on the gendered relations and look beyond the obvious. It aims to not only delve directly into the loss of jobs and earnings, but also indirectly in terms of food insecurity, depletion of savings and assets, social isolation, and mobility loss (much of it legalised and enforced by state). Further, women who were unpaid workers in homes and family enterprises, face further precarity. The conversation, moreover, aims to look into the labour market transitions, type of work that women have been doing, social protection and change in care work from the standpoint of the poor and excluded women across the globe. Lastly, it aims to look at the women led progressive pathways towards developing more equitable alternatives.
