Beyond COVID-19: advancing gender responsive policies on climate, care and jobs for a sustainable and equal future

17 March 2022

The event was held online on 17 March 2022, from 10:00 am to 11:30 am ET. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken an enormous toll on the lives of women and girls. The virus has acted as a ‘big revealer’ uncovering and exacerbating underlying gender inequalities which scar our societies and economies. The event, which drew on UN Women’s latest flagship report, Beyond COVID-19: A Feminist Plan for Sustainability and Social Justice and insights from the Secretary-General’s CSW66 priority and review theme reports, brought together a high-level panel of women leaders from the UN, Mary Robinson, Chair of the Elders, and young women climate activists for a dynamic and interactive dialogue. The event was opened by UN Women’s Executive Director Sima Bahous
