COVID-19 threatens women’s and girls’ well-being & requires men and boys to come on board

Listen to the voices of five leaders of our 22 MenEngage Africa networks

COVID-19 threatens women’s and girls’ well-being & requires men and boys to come on board Sonke Gender Justice "The current Covid-19 pandemic is a major gender and inequity challenge at various levels of society, including in the home. Many governments have ordered lockdowns – citizens are urged to stay in their homes to limit the spread of the virus. With this arrangement, however, the threat of gender-based violence lurks around and the burden of care work in households will be a heavy burden carried by women and girls, creating stress and anxiety that could make them susceptible to disease."
