Impact of Covid-19 Pandemic
on women of South Asia
Covid-19 affected people in diverse ways. However its impact on marginalized sections, especially women, has been on several fronts. Across the world, the pandemic has been declared a disaster for gender justice. It has exposed the existing inequalities and even to some extent, further deepened them. Women are now at greater risk from the health perspective, it increases their vulnerability to experience exploitation and abuse at family. Visible and invisible wounds of exploitation and abuse remain with women throughout their lives. As we stand in the middle of this historic inflection point, our collective response must be equally historic and urgent as far as women are concerned. The aim of this webinar is to focus on South Asian women, their issues in general and how the pandemic deepened their pre-existing inequalities and exposed gaps in our systems, amplifying the effects of the pandemic. Therefore we invite academicians to deliver speech on the following themes :
1)Covid-19 Pandemic and Domestic Violence amid Lockdown
2) Inadequate Awareness among women about Covid 19
3)Covid 19 Pandamic and Socio Economic impact on women
4)Health crisis of women during Covid- 19
5) Addressing Frontline women and their various indoor and outdoor issues.
