Covid-19: Protecting Women’s Economic Empowerment
In this moment of global health and economic crisis, women around the world are facing unprecedented challenges which directly threaten their rights and the empowerment that allows them to exercise those rights. More than ever, Win-Win Strategies is advocating for companies to address the specific needs of women and girls across value chains and to work with women’s funds and local women’s organisations to limit the impact of the pandemic on women’s rights and empowerment. As concrete actions, Win-Win Strategies is exploring options to help companies address the impact of the crisis on their value chains in a gender-responsive way and lend their support to women on the frontlines of the pandemic. It is channelling resources towards institutional strengthening of women’s funds and local women’s organisations so they are able to respond to the needs on the ground today whilst remaining lively and robust when this crisis has passed.Read Win-Win Strategies' Full Statement
