COVID-19 in the MENA region: What Gender Policy Responses Do We Need?

09.06.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

In the MENA region, women are overrepresented in industries that COVID-19 and its subsequent restrictions have impacted the hardest. Women remain at the forefront of essential services rendering them additionally vulnerable to the health and economic impacts of the virus. However, economic instability and pandemic responses are compounded with increases in unpaid labour by women, affecting their psychological and overall well-being.

This roundtable discussion will bring experts together to explore the inclusive gender responses needed for a better future for women and communities in the MENA region during a post-COVID-19 era. It will bring about inspiring and innovative ideas regarding gender policy responses that can be adopted by decision-makers in the MENA region to inform evidence-based policies to promote gender-inclusive economic, public, and social policies that empower women in both the public and private spheres.

The Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation will be present at the event.

Join what promises to be a very insightful discussion on COVID-19 crisis gender responses and policies
