Throughout the world, women and girls have disproportionately felt the burden of the pandemic because of the economic sectors in which they work, their increase in care responsibilities, and the deepening inequalities that hold them back.
The Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women — East Africa program, supported by IDRC, is co-hosting the webinar series with the Women’s Empowerment in Development Lab (WED Lab) at McGill University.
Webinar topics will include labour markets, the care economy and unpaid care work, marriage and fertility, gender-based violence, girls’ education, social protection programs, women and girl refugees, and global governance. The goal is not only to discuss the problems, but also to explore possible policy solutions for women in the labour market.
