” Surviving the COVID 19 Pandemic and Beyond: Women’s Perspectives from Asia “
Covid 19 took the world by storm and its impacts continue to ravage economies and societies across the world. COVID 19 is not only a deadly health pandemic but has far reaching impacts on all sectors of the economy and society. Women and girls because of their sex bear a disproportionate burden arising from the pandemic and this manifests in increasing incidences of domestic violence, loss of employment and income for women, disruption of education and reduced likelihood of girls returning to mainstream education and increasing numbers of child marriages as an escape route from poverty.
The Centre for Women Leadership (CWL) at Binary University in conjunction with International Women’s Day is organizing a Virtual Conference entitled “Surviving the COVID 19 Pandemic and Beyond: Women’s Perspectives from Asia “
The objectives of the Conference are to document the impact of COVID 19 on women and to examine various coping strategies women especially from the B40 group in Asia have used to ride the upheavals that the pandemic has caused.
