Inspiring feminist humanitarian action through lessons from Covid-19

In this parallel event for the NGO Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) Forum, Global South-based women’s rights organisations will share evidence of their role during the pandemic and the barriers they encounter inside the humanitarian system. This interactive discussion will build on new findings to explore how the Covid-19 recovery can reshape humanitarian response, equipping women’s rights organisations with adequate resources and decision-making power to upscale their frontline roles.
