The onset of COVID-19 has reiterated how public health outbreaks disproportionately affect girls and women and threaten to reverse the progress made with regards to their mobility, education, livelihoods, food security, sanitary hygiene, protection from abuse, and sexual and reproductive health rights.
On May 5, EMpower organized and hosted a webinar, ‘Her Point Of View: COVID-19 as experienced by Adolescent Girls’, spotlighting the impact of COVID-19 on adolescent girls in India. The panel comprised Meenu Vadera from Azad Foundation, Nandita Shah from Akshara Centre, Rubi from Feminist Approach to Technology, and Seema Dosad from Vacha Charitable Trust. All four organizations are EMpower grantee partners whose COVID-19 relief interventions are designed to address the gendered impact of the pandemic.
