The global COVID-19 pandemic affects us all - yet its impact is felt disproportionally more by some demographics than others. The crisis reminded the world of persistent inequalities, for instance regarding access to health care. It caused suffering in some of the most vulnerable communities, such as migrants and refugees. And in failing to acknowledge the gendered impact of the pandemic as well as of government responses, be it from national or global institutions, women are feeling the burden even more.
This GLOBE roundtable explores gender and intersectionality perspectives related to the pandemic. Our two invited experts, Sarah Hawkes and Anna Triandafyllidou, will take a special look at the impact of COVID-19 on people of all genders, analysing questions of health and migration.
