Dear community members,
Sharing my paper published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics : "The 'invisible' among the marginalised: Do gender and intersectionality matter in COVID-19 response?". The paper looks at the COVID-19 context and argues the critical need for gender and intersectionality in the design and implementation of policies and relief measures. To elucidate, the paper is contextualised in rural and tribal South Rajasthan and explains how gender-blind policies, faulty implementation have pushed women from these rural, tribal communities into ultravulnerability. Intersectionality is an essential approach that departs from homogeneity and uniform response to looking at intersections of different structures of power and emphasises the need for inclusive policy, finding the 'invisible' even among the marginalised.
