ActionAid Event with Katherine Mulhern, Director of CFID and Baroness Sugg.

 

It is a year since Covid-19 swept across the globe.

Over that period, it has become increasingly clear that the pandemic is widening existing inequalities.  

Women and girls are bearing the brunt of the social and economic consequences.

Many first responders are women, putting them both at risk and well placed to drive response strategies.

It’s time to put women first and trust their knowledge and expertise

Governments, including the UK, can and must do more to prioritise and advance women and girls’ rights and support women’s rights organisations,

including in times of crisis.
