‘Thinking Out Loud’ Video Series: Is the Coronavirus worse for women? – Agomoni Ganguli Mitra and Katrien Devolder
In the interview, Agomoni discusses how pandemics exacerbates existing, and creates new, inequalities. Specifically, she highlights how women are disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. Whether it’s in their role as carers, as targets of domestic violence, or as as suddenly job-less workers in the informal sector, women have an unequal burden to bear in this pandemic and emergency responses as a matter of justice, need to be adapted accordingly.
